Thought for the Day II

"I want you to sense with me the awesomeness of God.  God Thinking demands that you think of God, thoughts that image God as He is.  Know for certain, the only way you can even be the temple where God resides is if Christ Himself came and prepared a place for the Father.  Christ came and purified His house of prayer, by His atoning sacrifice.  The scripture says,@Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?@  1 Corinthians 3:16.  The scripture says, AWhat? 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?  V20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God=s@  1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Christ did not invade you. He comes by invitation. Once Christ comes to you and prepares your temple for entrance of the Holy Spirit, He charges you to take care of the temple. You do this by being:

  • "renewed in the spirit of our mind" - Eph 4:23.
  • "washed of water by the Word" - Eph. 5:26
  • "led by the Spirit of God" - Romans 8:15
Jesus changes the way you see God, when you use your temple to worship and serve God. When your temple becomes the house of prayer, you labor, not in vain, "For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building." 1 Corinthians 3:9.
