Who Is The Lord of Our Bodies?

Greetings to the Family members of the Body of Christ:

We see in Scripture, a loving Father who wills that we all come to know Him and Our Lord Jesus Christ. By obeying the commandments of Our Lord, we will certainly be transformed into greater knowledge and faith and hope and love in Him.

Our Lord told us this Truth for our instruction in righteousness:
 Mark 12:28 One of the scribes came and heard them arguing, and recognizing that He had answered them well, asked Him, "What commandment is the foremost of all?" 29Jesus answered, "The foremost is, 'HEAR, O ISRAEL! THE LORD OUR GOD IS ONE LORD; 30AND YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND, AND WITH ALL YOUR STRENGTH.'…

Lately, I have received a greater understanding of how our Lord Jesus makes us able and willing (those who have received the promised holy Spirit of Christ _Romans_8:9), helping us to obey all His commandments in fully comitted love to Our Father, His people, and those in the world.

Today I want to focus on this plea from Our Father....written by our Apostle Paul...
Romans 12:1 Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.…

Notice that "your bodies"  above, have all the components of human will that are separated in the Lord's foremost commandment. Our bodies contain : 1) our hearts 2) our souls 3) our minds 4) our strength.

And in these verses we clearly see that Our Father is teaching His children how to love like Him...namely  ALL. He has given, is giving and will give us All of Him.....and we know that God is Love....__1 John 4:16.

So, let us follow the Lord Jesus...and give Him our All, knowing that we can only do this through Him, by His Spirit which we have received...by obedience to Him.

1_Cor. 6:13 Food is for the stomach and the stomach is for food, but God will do away with both of them. Yet the body is not for immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord is for the body.

So, we can see how we can boldly say that Our Lord Jesus...is Lord of All....as well as Lord of All our individual bodies....with All our human components of our wills....desiring to continually worship Him and please Our Father in Heaven.....our spiritual service of worship.

As It is written:  _John 4:23  "But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. 24"God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth."

Let us be doers of His Word....not just hearers only..... by the Grace of Our God and Father, and His Son, Jesus Christ....Amen.
