The Place Where The Spirit Lives

A temple. 1 Cor. 6:19‭-20 says our body is a temple of the Holy Spirit.

Our body was not made for immorality. It was made to glorify God.

It’s our job to glorify God in our body. Consistently.

And if we are going to glorify God with our bodies, then we must maintain this temple and keep it in good working order as much as we can.

We must use our body in service by carrying the Gospel message to our communities, that is the top priority.

A faith that is alive produces a desire to accomplish works of love.

Secondarily, we must keep this body temple in shape by loving our Lord with all our heart, soul, mind and with all our strength (Mark 12:30). Jesus, said that this is the foremost commandment of all.

Don’t be a SadClown (@F3NWArkansas @F3Nation). Do what you can to maintain your temple in all four areas of Lord loving that Jesus described.

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body. 1 CORINTHIANS 6:19‭-‬20 NASB

Whatever you do, do it all to the glory of God.

Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 1 CORINTHIANS 10:31 NASB

How are you maintaining your temple this week (mind, heart, soul or strength)? Please comment and share with others.

40 Day Journey with Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Those who have gone before us and have lead by example are an inspiration.

Resisting evil, speaking for and protecting those who can’t speak for themselves, caring for the oppressed and downtrodden. These are attributes of a Christian with a faith that is alive and well.

James 2:17-26 is easy to understand. Faith without works is dead. Faith without works is useless.

Dietrich Bonhoeffer was an example to us, in modern history, of a person whose faith was not useless and was not dead. He acted.

I’ve recently started this devotional hosted by Bible Gateway. I would encourage each of you to join me.

40 Day Journey with Dietrich Bonhoeffer

“WHEN CHRIST CALLS A MAN, HE BIDS HIM COME AND DIE.”

Wait For It

This verse is a response to Habakkuk concerning the Chaldeans and God’s future plans to liberate the land and chastise the Chaldeans.

But God’s response to Habakkuk still holds meaning for us who have faith and hope today. God has created His own timetable. He is faithful. Jesus will return soon. Wait for it.

“For the vision is yet for the appointed time; It hastens toward the goal and it will not fail. Though it tarries, wait for it; For it will certainly come, it will not delay.

Behold, as for the proud one, His soul is not right within him; But the righteous will live by his faith.”

Habakkuk 2:3-4 NASB

And though they scoff, wait for it.

Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.”
2 Peter 3:3‭-‬4 NASB
