If You Are in Christ, Offer Your Body as a Living Sacrifice
We need to be often reminded, that our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit. If a person is in Christ Jesus, and Christ is in you, we are told that we are the temple of God. As such, we are to offer our bodies as a living sacrifice, that is holy and acceptable to God not based on what we do or what we don’t do, but because God has made us that way. He has made our bodies holy and blameless in His sight.
Romans 12:1 1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.

It is so important to understand our identity and the completeness of our identity in Christ Jesus. God makes us a son of God when we receive Him by faith. He will never leave us nor forsake us, nor will he ever not call us a son.
Don’t let Satan put the lie in your head that somehow, by something you do or don’t do, that God is going to disown you. Remember this, if you go into the pigsty, God is right there with you.
Just as a person’s physical growth is based on proper diet and exercise, so is the Christians’s spiritual growth dependent on regular feeding upon the word of God and application of its principles.
