Faith Training: Your Body Is A Temple

Your body is a temple. In this episode, I discuss how to apply God's Word towards your fitness and weight loss goals. We don't go through this alone. When we accept Christ, we receive the Holy Spirit. God wants to be a part of every aspect of our lives. He gives us the power, love, and self-control to treat our bodies as holy temples through the power of the Holy Spirit (2 Timothy 1:7). We can ask for His help, even with exercise and weight loss goals!

"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 6:19-20 ESV

Scripture References for Episode 26 - Your Body Is A Temple

“but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, since it is written, "You shall be holy, for I am holy." And if you call on him as Father who judges impartially according to each one's deeds, conduct yourselves with fear throughout the time of your exile, knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot.” 1 Peter 1:15-19 ESV

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” 1 John 1:9 ESV

“But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:4-7 ESV

“for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” 2 Timothy 1:7 ESV
