"But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a special people, that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his wonderful light" 1 Peter 2:9.
Abuse is defined as the inappropriate use of a resource. Many people, unfortunately, abuse themselves in various ways. Working nonstop without taking time to relax, for example, is an unhealthy use of the body and mind, all in the sake of increasing earnings or turnover. You will not burn the candle of your life from both ends if you understand how valuable you are.
The Holy Spirit is questioning you today in 1st Corinthians 6:15 if you realize that your body is a part of Christ. To put it another way, even the body we name ours belongs to Jesus Christ. This demonstrates how valuable we are in the eyes of the Lord. We are very special as God's children! The fact that we are all one spirit with God should bring joy to our hearts and cause us to avoid all forms of defilement.
It's no surprise that the Psalmist says in Psalm 139:14:
“I will praise thee because I am fearfully and wonderfully made: wondrous are thy works, as my soul knows.” When we mistreat our bodies, we are trampling on a priceless pearl that the Lord has bestowed upon us, not only because we were formed in His image, but also because He paid a high price to save us from the curse of sin and death.
We are far more valuable than the first Adam, because we were purchased at an incalculable cost.
Our Lord has called us out of the darkness of sin and Satan's power into the wonderful light of righteousness, prosperity, and great rescue. As a result, we must praise God in both our physical and spiritual selves. We are like a king's adored wife. The queen does not behave in a way that would embarrass the royal family, particularly her husband.
Furthermore, a queen does not lie because she is trustworthy. As a Christian, sleeping around is a silly thing to do. You are linked to Jesus Christ, the Church's Husband, even though you are not married to someone. Do you realize, beloved, that you are more valuable to God than angels? You will even judge angels, according to the Bible (1st Corinthians 6:3).
The fact that God has given you His priceless Holy Spirit as a deposit insuring you of future blessings should demonstrate how valuable you are to Him (2nd Corinthians 5:5). Even the angels are perplexed by God's immense generosity to humanity and the fact that He has placed us in charge of the future planet (1st Peter 1:12, Hebrews 2:5-8).
If I were you, I would closely preserve my salvation armed with this information, lest I lose my worth and become a castaway (1st Corinthians 9:27)
Prayer: Father, In Jesus' Name, open my heart's eyes to realize that all the adversary and the world throw at me pales in contrast to my worth.
