2 Corinthians 5:17 ... If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature ... old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
1 Corinthians 6:19,20 ... Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost Who is in you, which you have of God, and you are not your own? (You don't belong to yourself any longer). For you were bought with a price: (the precious Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ). Therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit which belong to God.
2 Corinthians 6:16 ... What agreement does the temple of God have with idols? For we are the temple of the Living God, as God has said: "I will dwell in them and I will be their God, and they shall be My people."
Christians (believers) need to bow down and totally submit their lives to God. He won't take your free will away from you ... He wants you to totally submit your will to Him.
Does this mean that He's going to dictate to you every little thing that you do? NO! Because He isn't a dictator. He intended that we all submit and be obedient to His leading.
If you're not willing to submit 100% of your life to God, then you'll be getting less than 100% blessings from Him. Often what we want is different than what He wants for us. He only asks that we respond to what His will is for us.
Most of us older folks, perhaps some of the younger ones, remember a tv. show named "Father Knows Best". Well, our Heavenly Father does know what's best!
