1 Corinthians 9:27 ESV "But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified."We've all heard it but are we doing it?! Today's verse is about taking care of our bodies and keeping it under control! We've all heard it, if we are going to talk the talk, we need to walk the walk! Simply means that our life should reflect what we are saying. If we say we want to lose weight but keep on eating that chocolate cake, then we aren't really walking the walk. Or how about saying we love Jesus but not loving our enemies, then we aren't walking the walk. We can have it both ways but that's not truly talking the talk and walking the walk. I had to examine my life when I looked into the mirror and realized that my body didn't fit the walking the walk after saying I wanted to lose weight. I had to examine my life when I said that I love Jesus and didn't love my enemies, how about you?! peace, tom
