Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? (1 Corinthians 6:19)
If the world us going to see the grace and glory of the Lord, they are going to see it in us. Therefore, we must choose to be true to the One who bought us at a price, and remember we no longer belong to ourselves, but to Him exclusively. His Spirit dwells in us - not a a guest, but as Lord and Master of the house; and that house must be kept clean, if we want Him to abide.
The in-dwelling of the Holy Spirit is the only difference between the children of God and all other religious people. It is the Holy Spirit who reveals the things of God and Christ to us. The power of the Holy Spirit is the substance victorious living, spiritual vitality, health, holiness, and wholeness. We must never grieve the Spirit by suppressing, ignoring, or limiting Him in our lives and our fellowship. May we love in the Spirit, pray in the Spirit, sing in the Spirit, prophesy in the Spirit, and walk in the Holy Spirit, who was given to us by God as a guarantee of our inheritance as chidren of the Most High! Hallelujah and amen.
Let's Pray - Lord, give me eyes, ears, and a heart for the abiding presence and power of the Holy Spirit. May my home and church be places Your Spirit finds worthy of dwelling in. Thank you, amen.
