The words of Oswald Chambers ring true this Christmas Season: “Your body is the Bethlehem of God’s Son.” Paul said it like this: “Your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit” (1 Corinthians 6:19).
The next time you are tempted to use your body for selfish indulgences, remember who else lives there. God isn’t just watching what you are doing; He is there. You cannot go to a sexually oriented business, to see an affair partner, or any other place where you like to act out – without taking Him with you.
As you gather around your Christmas tree, reflect on these words from Amy Grant. “Faith is salted and peppered through everything at Christmas. And I love at least one night by the Christmas tree to sing and feel the quiet holiness of that time that’s set apart to celebrate love, friendship, and God’s gift of the Christ child.”
Recovery Step: Celebrate God’s gift of His Son. And never forget that wherever you go, He goes.
