Renovation of the Heart pg. 118

by Jonathan Bailey

“No longer idolize your body. Human ruin comes from placing ourselves at the center of the Universe, in place of God. This leads to a worship of the body and a life of sensuality. Then our body becomes our primary source of gratification and the chief instrument for getting what we want. For most people their body governs their life.”

“Bodily pleasure in itself is not a bad thing, but when it is exalted to a necessity and when we become dependent upon it, then we are slaves to our body and it’s feelings. Only misery lies ahead.”

Here is a bonus quote from an unknown author that has nothing to do with this post.

“I cannot work my soul to save, for that my Lord hath done, but I will work like any slave, for love of God’s dear Son.”
