The Human Body – New Testament

 

1Co 9:27 but I discipline my body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified.

 

1Co 7:4 The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does; and likewise also the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does.

 

1Co 6:20 For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body.

 

1Co 13:3 And if I give all my possessions to feed the poor, and if I surrender my body to be burned, but do not have love, it profits me nothing.

 

1Co 15:42 So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown a perishable body, it is raised an imperishable body;

1Co 15:43 it is sown in dishonor, it is raised in glory; it is sown in weakness, it is raised in power;

1Co 15:44 it is sown a natural body, it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.

 

2Co 4:7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves;

2Co 4:8 we are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing;

2Co 4:9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed;

2Co 4:10 always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.

2Co 4:11 For we who live are constantly being delivered over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.

2Co 4:16 Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day.

2Co 4:17 For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison,

2Co 4:18 while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

 

2Co 5:6 Therefore, being always of good courage, and knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord–

2Co 5:7 for we walk by faith, not by sight–

2Co 5:8 we are of good courage, I say, and prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord.

2Co 5:9 Therefore we also have as our ambition, whether at home or absent, to be pleasing to Him.

2Co 5:10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may be recompensed for his deeds in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.

 

Phi 1:20 according to my earnest expectation and hope, that I will not be put to shame in anything, but that with all boldness, Christ will even now, as always, be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death.

Phi 1:21 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.

Phi 1:22 But if I am to live on in the flesh, this will mean fruitful labor for me; and I do not know which to choose.

Phi 1:23 But I am hard-pressed from both directions, having the desire to depart and be with Christ, for that is very much better;

Phi 1:24 yet to remain on in the flesh is more necessary for your sake.

 

Phi 3:20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ;

Phi 3:21 who will transform the body of our humble state into conformity with the body of His glory, by the exertion of the power that He has even to subject all things to Himself.

 

Col 2:20 If you have died with Christ to the elementary principles of the world, why, as if you were living in the world, do you submit yourself to decrees, such as,

Col 2:21 “Do not handle, do not taste, do not touch!”

Col 2:22 (which all refer to things destined to perish with use)–in accordance with the commandments and teachings of men?

Col 2:23 These are matters which have, to be sure, the appearance of wisdom in self-made religion and self-abasement and severe treatment of the body, but are of no value against fleshly indulgence.

 

Col 3:5 Therefore consider the members of your earthly body as dead to immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed, which amounts to idolatry.

Col 3:6 For it is because of these things that the wrath of God will come upon the sons of disobedience,

Col 3:7 and in them you also once walked, when you were living in them.

Col 3:8 But now you also, put them all aside: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and abusive speech from your mouth.

 

1Th 5:21 But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good;

1Th 5:22 abstain from every form of evil.

1Th 5:23 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1Th 5:24 Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass.

1Th 5:25 Brethren, pray for us.
