I want you to sense with me the awesomeness of God.  God Thinking demands we think of God, thoughts that image God as He is.  Know for certain, the only way you and I 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, (you and I), 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, "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?  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 or me.  He comes by invitation.  Once Christ comes to us and prepares our temple for entrance of the Holy Spirit, He charges us to take care of the temple.  We 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 we see God, when we use our temple to worship and serve God.  When our temple becomes the house of prayer, we 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.

God has revealed through His Word that He wants us to allow His written Word to come to life, in us and through us.  Every aspect of life that requires God's supernatural intervention, is performed by God, while He abides, (lives within) us.  If this is not enough motivation for us to live by God's Word, nothing else can keep us.
