Our identity comes from God alone. Our status with God–our relationship with God–our salvation–is not earned. But it can be “worked out.” That is, if we have accepted Jesus’ reconciling sacrifice for us, if we have “signed up” to be His apprentices, if the Holy Spirit is residing with our spirits, our lives will be an expression of that fact–of our salvation.
The way the fruit of God’s love through our Treasure demonstrates the extent to which all the other aspects of our lives really belong to Him.
1 Corinthians 6:16-20 (also 1 Corinthians 3:11-17)
“Our bodies will be transformed, but they will be our bodies, resurrected just like Jesus’. What we do in and to our bodies now matters in eternity.”
