Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.

– 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (NIV)

Today’s commentary by Corinne Baur, RRCA Running Coach and author of Running by THE BOOK.

Paul is writing that our bodies belong to God, He bought them with the blood of Christ. Yet so many of us neglect our bodies — the Holy Spirit’s home! Somehow we disconnect our spirits from our bodies. We work on our spiritual life while neglecting the physical, or we strengthen our physical bodies without regard for our spiritual health. But God intends for us to turn everything over to Him. From nutrition to time in the Word, from exercise to prayer, God’s desire is for us to honor Him with every aspect of our lives.
