A Meditation to Re-narrate How You See Your Body from 1 Corinthians 6:14-17


In Christian meditation, we are re-aligning ourselves vertically. We're remapping our horizontal realities with a vertical view/perspective. Enabling us to embody that vertical perspective replaces anxiety and tension with a calm confidence.

How you see your body — how you see yourself — is in one sense the main stage in which the battle for your soul takes place. The one who wants to destroy your soul is always working to try to get you to re-narrate how you see your body/self. And the Bible is always God speaking to you the truth about who you are that, if you really understood and grasped it, it would bring a sense of power and elevated glory to every moment of your life. Your conscious awareness in everything you do.

1 Corinthians 6:14-15, 17 NIV

“By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also. Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? …Whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit.”

This is marriage language in the Bible — not the broken and painful Genesis 3 marriages we experience and contribute to — but the Genesis 1 and 2 ideal that God meant to foreshadow our union with Christ as our creator and source of glory and joy and creativity and love. “The two shall become one flesh.”

So imagine this…

Your body is ONE with the one who the apostle John writes in John 1 is the source of every created thing in the universe — “the one through whom all things were made and without him nothing was made that has been made.” The one the apostle Paul says in Colossians — “in him all things hold together.”
