Notable Quotable: “How We Can Glorify God With Our Body” – Mark Dever

images[11] (2)

“We do not glorify God with our bodies by burnishing and polishing them at the gym until they shine; rather we glorify Him by using our bodies relationally and sexually in the ways God has instructed us in His Word. Paul stressed these physical sins because they were an area of particularly and pervesely proud disinterest to the “spiritual” party in Corinth. We know from elsewhere in the New Testament that doctrinal error and loveless divisiveness are grounds for the church to judge someone within their number. . .” (Mark Dever, “Twelve Challenges Churches Face”)
