“And do not go on presenting the members of your body to sin as instruments of unrighteousness; but present yourselves to God as those alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God” (Romans 6:13).
As believers we must guard against an attitude toward the body that is more Greek than biblical; that the body must be negatively viewed as something from which one must escape or the soul awaits release like a caged bird. To depreciate the body is to fall short in fully appreciating the implications of the incarnational Christ. It is through the body that we present our spiritual service of worship (Romans 12:1). There is no such thing as a disembodied faith.
