Your Body is a Temple - Keep it Holy!

What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 1 Corinthians 6:19
So what does it mean to keep your body holy? The main meaning of keeping your body holy is refraining from fornication, but what are other things that we can do to keep our body holy? What about monitoring the things that we put into our bodies? Like the amount and kinds of food that we eat? Or refraining from drugs?

The Christian body is a holy temple and in the Christian temple resides the Holy Spirit. Therefore, it is a sin and an abomination to God to participate in lustful, fornicating pleasures which invites the Spirit of Lust into our bodies or to eat unhealthily (e.g. Gluttony) or to put anything into our bodies that will harm us since anything that harms us is not of God.

When Yeshua was crucified on the cross, He paid the penalty for the sins of the world. Therefore, our bodies were bought at a price.
For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's. 1 Corinthians 6:20
So what are you feeding your body? What you feed your body is what you will become. So are you feeding your temple the pleasures of the world which is the Spirits of Darkness, or are you feeding your body the Holy Spirit which is the light of the body that drives out the darkness?
And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. John 1:5
