For Reading and Meditation: 1 Corinthians 6:12-20
We are still focusing on this important thought that our attitudes play an important and determinative part in our physical health. One doctor told me that immediately he receives the current edition of Every Day with Jesus, he quickly scans it to see if I have written anything along the line of the...
Bible Verses: 1 Corinthians 6:12-201 Corinthians 4:1-16Proverbs 20:27Matthew 15:18-19Mark 7:21-23
No: Jesus has purchased you with His own blood, quickened you by His Spirit, espoused you to Himself, and intends to glorify you with Himself for ever. He claims you, and says, "I have called thee by thy name; thou art Mine." He will provide for you as His own, and spare you, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.
You are His beloved bride. His portion. A member of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones. In loving you, He loveth Himself. He requires you to live under the...
Bible Verses: 1 Corinthians 6:19
The liberty of the child of God is one of his priceless possessions. Made free by the Son, he is free indeed. But he is called to responsible freedom, not to license.
Children want to be free from the restraints of home. Young people want to be free from the discipline of study. Adults want to be free from their marriage vows. Still others rebel against being boxed in by regular employment. But these are not the freedoms to which we are called.
The stars are not free to leave...

One of the surface lessons we learn from this passage is that Christians should not be prone to engage in lawsuits. It is a natural reaction to rush to court to seek redress for grievances and damages. But the believer is guided by higher principles than natural reactions. The will of God often cuts across the grain of nature.
Our law courts today are glutted with accident claims, malpractice suits, divorce cases and inheritance claims. In many cases, people rush to the lawyer in the...
Bible Verses: Matthew 5:251 Corinthians 6:1-20Romans 12:18
In this verse, the temple of God refers to the local assembly. Paul is not speaking to individual Christians but to believers collectively when he says "which temple ye (plural) are." The saints in Corinth comprised a temple of God.
It is also true, of course, that individual believers are a temple of the Holy Spirit. The Apostle brings this out in 1 Corinthians 6:19 : "What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which...
Bible Verses: 1 Corinthians 3:171 Corinthians 6:19
Rights relating to property are carefully guarded by men.
They greatly resent any unwarranted use of what belongs to them. To touch their property is to touch them. The earth is the Lord's and the fulness thereof. Man sold himself to Satan and presumed to transfer the earth and the fulness thereof to the arch-apostate, and God so far allowed the bargain (for the punishment of man.) that Satan may be correctly styled the god of this world. " He that committeth sin is the servant of...
Bible Verses: 1 Corinthians 6:20
"Listen to another parable: There was a landowner who planted a vineyard. He put a wall around it, dug a winepress in it and built a watchtower. Then he rented the vineyard to some farmers and went away on a journey."
Bible Verses: Matthew 21:33-461 Corinthians 6:19Mark 12:6Romans 8:17
SHEPHERD is a very rustic name for Christ, and yet as used in the Scriptures, it is wonderfully rich in its suggestiveness. In the Old Testament there are many allusions to God under this figure of a shepherd. The twenty-third psalm is a Bible classic. Perhaps no other portion of the Scriptures is so widely known, or had had such a ministry of blessing in the world, as this rustic little psalm....
Bible Verses: John 10:1-181 Corinthians 6:19-20
But You are holy, enthroned in the praises of Israel. § [God] said, “Do not draw near this place. Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground.” Moreover He said, “I am the God of your father—the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob.” And Moses hid his face, for he was afraid to look upon God. § “To whom then will you liken Me, or to whom shall I be equal?” says the Holy One. § I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior… I,...

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. § Glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.You are … a royal priesthood … that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous...
