身體–榮耀神的管道 Body – A Channel to Honor God

使徒保羅告誡哥林多教會要追求身體的聖潔以及尊重地對待它, 因為與主聯合的是與主為一靈. 本週, 張國強牧師詳細地與我們分享如何把我們的身體用於榮耀上帝的原則.

The Apostle Paul admonished the Corinthian church to treat their bodies with sanctity and respect in recognition of the fact that they were joined together with Christ. This week, Rev. Jeremiah Cheung shares the principles of sanctifying our bodies so we can live for the glory of God.

1. Start with a prayer

2. Engage one another (15-30 mins)
• Share a time you did something because you could, but realized that you shouldn’t have. What happened? What did you learn from this experience?

3. Engage the mind (15-20 mins)
• Before hearing the message, what was your understanding of freedom (v.12)? Does this definition align with the Bible?
• Read the passage. How does knowing that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit (v.19) affect your understanding of purity and intimacy?

4. Engage the heart (15-20 mins)
• Examine yourself: What is currently mastering you? What can help ensure that your freedom remains aligned with God’s will?
• Reflect on your current habits and choices. Do they align with the idea of using your body to bring honor and glory to God? Why or why not?

5. Engage the hands (15-20 mins)
• Starting this week, how will you prioritize activities and pursuits that have eternal value over those that solely cater to temporary satisfaction?
• What concrete steps can you take to flee from sexual immorality, cultivate purity in your thoughts and actions, and honor God daily with your body?

6. Engage with God in prayer (20-30 mins)
• Thank the Heavenly Father for revealing to us the sacred importance of honoring Him with our bodies. Express your gratitude for today’s reminder that our freedom in Christ is not a license for indulgence but an opportunity to glorify Him in every aspect of our lives. Praise Him for the gift of our bodies and the privilege of using them as vessels for His glory. Pray that your life would continually reflect the beauty of His holiness as you seek to honor Him with your thoughts, words, and actions.
• Humbly approach the Lord acknowledging your shortcomings and areas where you have failed to honor Him with your body. Ask for forgiveness for the times when you have allowed yourself to be mastered by worldly desires and passions, instead of surrendering to His will. Repent for any instances of sexual immorality or impurity that have defiled the temple of His Holy Spirit within you. Ask for the strength to flee from temptation and to walk in purity and righteousness, knowing that your body is precious in His sight.
