“If we have a way of thinking that is contrary to Gods word , it’s an open door for the enemy.” -Pastor Robert Morris, Gateway Church
If you don’t like your body, you open the door for the enemy to come in and destroy your body. Cutting, drug abuse, reckless accidents, sexual immorality, obesity, over-working it, starving it etc.
“Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.” (1 Corinthians 6:18-20)
“Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple.” (1 Corinthians 3:16, 17)
“I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.” (Romans 12:1)
Ladies please hear me on this: when we say, “I hate my body, or I’m too short, or I don’t like my nose,” or whatever it is, we are saying, “God, I hate Your temple.” These bodies are not our own. They’re a gift from God and the Word says:
“I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.” (Psalms 139:14)
If you have been abusing your body because you hate it, please repent or you will die before your time:
“Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully grown brings forth death.”(James 1:15)
It’s a sin to abuse God’s temple. Please take this seriously. God loves you and He is the one who formed you, who knit you together in your mother’s womb. Stop hating yourself, and begin to take care of the body God gave you so you can be effective for Him and be ready to face Him on that day, having ran your race well and to His desired end, not a premature one.
Because God says you are!
