"The Sanctuary of the Holy Spirit"

“The Sanctuary of the Holy Spirit”



Don’t you know that your body is a sanctuary of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought at a price. Therefore glorify God in your body.--------1Corinthians 6:19-20



As a Child of God, a believer, we are part of Christ’s body, and our bodies are the sanctuary, in which the Holy Spirit dwells.  When we use our bodies to commit sins, we grieve and bring shame to Christ Jesus and Father God as well as the Holy Spirit. 


The Holy Spirit is given to us by Father God as a Comforter, Counselor, and Guide, to help us live a RIGHTEOUS and HOLY life. But some believers quench the work of the Spirit that indwells them, and this makes them a weak spot in the body of Christ, and it can cause them to fall into temptation, which will lead to sinning against the Holy Trinity, since we are a Child of God, a part of the body of Christ, and the sanctuary of the Holy Spirit.


As Children of God, a part of the body of Christ, and the sanctuary of the Holy Spirit, we need to flee from temptation and allow the Holy Spirit to work in us, to help us overcome the temptations that we face every day.  And to strive to bring honor to the Holy Trinity and not shame.


When we come to Christ for our SALVATION, we were bought at a price, the precious, shed blood of Christ Jesus, and we are not our own, we belong to Him, because we are a part of His body.  And we need to do ALL we can to be a healthy, strong, vibrant part that will honor God and glorify Him.


If you have not come to Christ for the SALVATION of your soul, then you don’t have God’s gift of His Spirit in you, to comfort, counsel or guide you through this life.  And you do not belong to Him, nor are you a part of the body of Christ or the sanctuary of the Holy Spirit.  Now to some, that may not mean a whole lot.  But let me just say this, it means that you are DESTINED to spend ALL eternity in HELL, the place of torment, torture, pain, heartache, and despair, for ALL eternity, with NO way out.  However, you can change your destination by: CONFESSING your sins to God and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART that Jesus died for You and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and become a Child of God, a part of the body of Christ, and the sanctuary of the Holy Spirit.  Do it NOW, while you STILL can.  He’s waiting!!!
