Do You Live Like God's Spirit Lives In You? What The What?
Do you not know that you are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in you?
This can be taken as such a “Me-centric” verse, and well, it is and it isn’t! YOU and I are now God’s temple; the place where HE lives, dwells, and makes His residence in. So, yes, it is totally about me being the residence of the Spirit of God. WHAT???? Did I just say that? That is one crazy awesome and powerful statement! God’s Spirit lives in you and me!
But the emphasis is really not the temple, but the Spirit that lives in it! Just like the buildings that we gather in on sunday mornings (or whenever you meet:) might be a temple/church building etc, but that’s not the emphasis. We are just skin and bone. The buildings are just rock and mortar, but when the people who have the Spirit of God IN THEM gather in agreement (80minutes), there is power because of what’s living inside of them! And when the Church (church: people with the Spirit of God in them) scatters all week long (10000MINUTES), that same Spirit that raised Jesus from the grave goes with them!
YOU and I are the dwelling place where God’s Spirit LIVES!!! As we are memorizing Joshua 1:9 this week, together let’s remember what we are (living temples for the Spirit of God), who we are (forgiven no matter what, loved, and powerful), and who we’re traveling with EVERYWHERE WE GO!
I love you guys. SOOOOO excited to live this out with y’all!
