"Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God? You are not your own; for you were bought at a price. Therefore glorify God in your body."
"But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest when I have preached to others I myself should become disqualified."
"For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control."
"Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?"
"For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit."
"Let your moderation be known to all men. The Lord is at hand."
"But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you."
"Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning."
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation."
