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
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.
