52/365: One Life, One Body

I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.  ~Romans 12:1

We get one shot at life. One trip around the bases. God has given us an amazing machine, the human body, which we use to experience His creation.  

The key to getting the most out of the man God made you to be is learning self-discipline.

"It was character that got us out of bed, commitment that moved us into action, and discipline that enabled us to follow through."    ~Zig Ziglar

If you fall prey to temptation or give in to weak moments of the flesh, then likely you are missing self-discipline. The best way to overcome this is to view your discipline as a contest which must be won.

GO DEEPER:   1 Corinthians 6: 18-20

NEXT STEP: Honor God with your body and stay ready to use it for the service of others. Is this something you can commit to do?
