Know Ye Not That Your Bodies Are Members Of Christ

"Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not!"
I Corinthians 6:15 NKJV.

I grew up with a brand of Christianity that trashes the body in almost every sermon. The body is made up to be the enemy of everything divine. It must be clearly noted that there is a huge difference between your body and the "sinful nature". The body by itself cannot do anything without the mind. The problem of sin is the carnal mind and that is what is at enmity with God (Romans 8:7). Once you are born again, the "body of sin" is destroyed (Romans 6:6).

My point is that the body is not the problem, the mind is. The human body is a gift from God. It was originally made to live forever until sin came into the world. In the day that Adam ate the forbidden tree, death came in through the transgression. Christians should not think that the believer's body is not important or is the source of all evil because, think about it, of all places God could have chosen to dwell, He chose our bodies as His permanent domicile. He deserted the multimillion dollar temple of Solomon in Jerusalem to live in us by the Holy Spirit.

Without the body, man is not complete and that is why the resurrection is even a doctrine in the first place. If the body was not important, resurrection would be unnecessary. We would just transition from this body into another and we would be just fine but no, dry bones will live again by God's power.

So God wants your body healthy and it's well-being looked after because your body is also a member of Christ, not just your spirit alone. Your body, which was honored to be an organ of the body of Christ must have good food, the best clothes, must be sickness free, and sin free. The body which is a member of Christ must not die. How can a part of Christ's body die. Okay, lets say it dies for some reason, even then, Jesus will come and raise it up.  That's how important the body is to the Lord. Jesus gave eternal life to our spirits as well as our bodies. Your body is different, it has been impacted by God's Spirit and power and that's why handkerchiefs and aprons were taken from Paul's body to heal the sick and cast out devils. That is the same reason Paul was bitten by a deadly snake and did not die. Value and honor your body by keeping it pure, healthy and alive.

My body is a member of Christ and must be kept in sound health and prosperity
