The greatest gift...
God gives the Spirit; we receive him. Indeed, the greatest
gift the Christian has ever received, ever will or could
receive, is the Spirit of God himself. He enters our human
personality and changes us from within. He fills us with
love, joy and peace. He subdues our passions and
transforms our characters into the likeness of Christ.
Today there is no man-made temple in which God dwells.
Instead, his temple is his people. He inhabits both the
individual believer and the Christian community. 'Do you
not know', asks Paul, 'that your body is a temple of the
Holy Spirit, who is in you?' Again: 'Do you not know that
you yourselves [plural, corporately] are God's temple and
that God's Spirit lives in you?' (1 Cor. 6:19; 3:16).
grace and peace to you,
For Mercy Street Ministries, I'm Stan Baldwin.
