    My friend don't judge your body according to the worlds standard. God gave you the body you have. Enjoy the gift God has given you and don't be concerned about this thing. Keep reading the bible and you will understand.. God Bless

    Verse 18 says that we should not get drunk but should be filled with holy spirit.
  • Margarita
    I like Ephesians because you can apply it to our every day life and teaches us the priority that we should have daily in our Christian walk and how to commune with God our Father. It also teaches how we should have a clean vessel so the Holy Spirit can dwell in us with Almighty Power! To be a living sacrificed temple for God, only God. To be sold out the same time villa lent of evil.
