Paul had to keep his body under subjection.
Paul who was an apostle, who only sought for the glory of God, faced manifold temptations and trials, yet kept himself holy.
If a mighty servant of God like Paul had to subject himself, how much more, you and me. Paul was always immersed in scripture. He loved God, he made his own money as a tentmaker, and preached the gospel.
What is stopping us from living this lifestyle today, according to the grace given to us? What is your calling?
Are you a Christian? Then only you can live like a Christian. Are you? Is your heart transformed to live for Jesus everyday? Do you know what it means to live for Jesus? Colossians 3:17 says, whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
As Christians, our personal subjection or consecration is a powerful reminder to the people in our lives. Reminder for? That there is a God, His name is Jesus! He desires you to join him as King.
You may lived in your own desires till today. Now is the time to turn to God. Obey the word of God, seek counsel in prayer and bible study. Praise him with your lifestyle. Watch and pray, Jesus is coming very soon.
