The Body

How much time, energy, and money do we spend beautifying and repairing the body? Can we turn our face away from God, from Christ, any further? We have stretched the rubber band as far as it can go, and now it will break. This society glorifies the body when we should be glorifying God. Our bodies are the holy temples that God expresses and works through, and we want to be as healthy as we can so that God has a clear vessel through which His light can shine. But making the body a clean vessel and glorifying the body are completely different. The former simply acknowledges that the body just is; it can be used to bless and spread Love, or it can be used to spread fear and hate. It does not have an agenda of its own. It simply acts in accordance with your wishes. If we glorify the body, we are placing it on a pedestal above God. We are worshiping a false idol. We are worshiping something that will go back to dust. Only you and God are eternal.
