Making good use of the human body

The eyes – organs of spiritual perception and understanding:

Ephesians 1:18 – Eyes look to God

The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints…

Jeremiah 5:21 – Eyes sometimes see not.

Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not…

The feet:

Romans 10:15 – Used to preach the Gospel

And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

Ephesians 6:15 – Feet preach the Gospel of peace

And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace…

The mind:

Isaiah 26:3 – God gives a mind of peace

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

2 Timothy 1:7 – God gives us a sound mind

For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

Romans 12:6 – We are to be of the same mind

Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.

The heart:

Romans 10:9,10 – The heart believes unto righteousness

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.


Designed for service:

Ephesians 6:7 – Doing service unto God

With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men…


Life and death:

James 1:15 – Sin leads to death

Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

Ecclesiastes 12:13,14 – Man’s all is to keep the commandments

Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
