Surely this is their splendor The most vibrant and full of life
How the colors pop off the canvas of the sky It brings gladness to me For God has given us a sign
Yet what’s this I see The leaves dropping here and there Is not this the pinnacle of their grandeur?
Oh the height of their beauty is the beginning of their end For only a short time God waits for their purpose is for HimLord let my last breath and final purpose be as the leaves are to this tree To return to you my best showing And then quickly return to thee
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.
When the enemy stand before me You are there When the storms of life surround me You are there When the trials of strife weigh heavy You are there….
I call upon You, Lord I call upon You, Lord And I am saved I call upon You, Lord And …. I … am … saved!
You are worthy, Lord You are worthy, Lord You are worthy to be praised, Almighty God
You are my fortress, You are my shield, You are my comfort and my strength You are worthy to be praised, Mighty God,
“I love You, O Lord , my strength.” The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold. I call upon the Lord , who is worthy to be praised, And I am saved from my enemies. Psalms 18:1-3
