You are a living sacrifice.
Your relationship is a living sacrifice as well.
You know it’s interesting how insane the world has become in recent times. Young people especially have the notion that they can do anything and get away with anything.
But you know what? God’s standards have not and will not change.
So it’s either you are with Him or against Him.
As much as God is a loving Father, He will not condone our excesses.
We would also be depriving ourselves of what is in His hands if we don’t align with His heart.
Malachi 1:6-10 (NLT) says
The lord of Heaven’s Armies says to the priests: “A son honors his father, and a servant respects his master. If I am your father and master, where are the honor and respect I deserve? You have shown contempt for my name!“But you ask, ‘How have we ever shown contempt for your name?’
“You have shown contempt by offering defiled sacrifices on my altar.“Then you ask, ‘How have we defiled the sacrifices?’“You defile them by saying the altar of the lord deserves no respect.
When you give blind animals as sacrifices, isn’t that wrong? And isn’t it wrong to offer animals that are crippled and diseased? Try giving gifts like that to your governor, and see how pleased he is!” says the lord of Heaven’s Armies.
“Go ahead, beg God to be merciful to you! But when you bring that kind of offering, why should he show you any favor at all?” asks the lord of Heaven’s Armies.
“How I wish one of you would shut the Temple doors so that these worthless sacrifices could not be offered! I am not pleased with you,” says the lord of Heaven’s Armies, “and I will not accept your offerings.
Our body above all things, is the temple of God and should be treated as such. Say no to all forms of sexual perversion. There are no two ways about it. Honour God in your body.
Apart from sexual iniquities, there are other ways we honour God in our bodies. Gluttony for example is a sin.
It’s not everything you eat. There are times of consecration with fasting. Even when you are not fasting, you still don’t have to eat anything and everything. That is the way to learn self control.
As such, one hot leg girl will not just come and easily seduce you. One guy will not also come and tell you ‘have jeru trip with me or this relationship is over’.
Other forms of dishonouring God include lust of the eyes and pride of life.
Be careful what you allow into your body system. Delight only in God and keeping His commandments.
Don’t be proud no matter your achievements. Finally honour your parents: both biological and spiritual.
May God help us.
