BUT I DISCIPLINE MY BODY…
Apostle Paul, after many years of his salvation in Christ, he said, “But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.” 1 Corinthians 9:27.
What many Christians do not understand is that after their souls are saved in Christ, the flesh is not saved. Your body is Satan’s device to war against your saved soul, so you must discipline your body and subdue it to the Spirit of God by the Word of God, by watchfulness and daily prayer. This is the reason why many Christians fall back into sins, because they are ignorant this, but we must not be ignorant of devices of Satan.
We must continuously discipline our body – tongue, feelings, legs, hands, eyes, ears, etc. no matter how long you have been saved or how genuine your salvation is.
We are getting closer to the glorious day, and His grace will see us through. Amen!
