Some love to munch on food; so they spend lots of money on snacks.
Others like to adorn themselves at all times.
And there are some who are so hygienically minded that they are continually obsessed with a sense of danger.
What is all this?
It is loving of one’s own life.
Many love their own life so much that they cannot bear the slightest suffering or to come too near the sick.
To put it quit frankly, THEY ARE UNDER BONDAGE TO THEIR BODY.
Yet Paul said this: I buffet my body, and lead it captive.
If we allow our body to dominate us, that is sin.
Our body should be UNDER US, NOT above us.
Many sacrifice morning prayer because they want to sleep.
Many sacrifice the time for reading the Bible because they want to eat.
Many cannot serve God because they covet snacks and indulge in adornment.
Lack of control over these areas of the body is sinful.
