What's going on in your temple?

"Know ye not that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shalll God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are." 1 Corinthians 3:16 -17

What you got going on in your temple?

Do you have impure thoughts?

Do you have a cigarette?

Do you drink?

Do you lust?

Do you lie?

Do you use drugs?

Do you look at pornography?

Are you a sex addict?

Do you have a self righteous attitude?

What are you holding in your heart?

No matter what you do sin, is sin, and is wrong in the sight of God, whether it be big or little.

Our attitude toward sin should be God centered.

We should be more cared about the heart of God, than having the victory over sin.

When we get into that place of total dependency upon Him, we won't want to sin.

God wants us to walk in obedience!

When we walk in obedience to Him, we will get the victory.

We must take sin seriously.

"Take us the little foxes that spoil the vines:." Song of Solomon 2:15a

We can not compromise, for when we do it as those little issues that will lead to a greater downfall.

We must obey the Lord in what ever He commands of us.

All things in which He commands.

When we look at sin, we must see it as a personal offense against God.

We must begin by taking personal responsibility for our sin, our "actions."

We must learn to depend upon Him.

We must decide to obey God in all areas of our life!

We must obey Him in the insignificant, and the significant issues of our life.

We ourselves do not know what is always right, just or even fair, but God in His perfect knowledge know what is right and what is wrong.

His actions toward us are always perfect and just.

God is absolutely free from any moral evil.

"This then is the message which we have heard of Him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all." 1 John 1:5

    THIS IS MY TRUE STORY
    I gave my life to JESUS at the tender age of 14 years of age, {ROMANS 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Je’sus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved}.and about two weeks later this is what happened to me.
    On one morning in late 1986, I was getting up and I saw that everybody was sound asleep. Right across my room was the restroom, and as I begin to walk toward it, I heard the spirit of GOD say to me, “Look in your hand”. I began to say back to the spirit of GOD, “Why would I look in my hand?” Then the spirit of GOD spoke for the second time, “I said look in your hand”. By now I am still talking back to the spirit of GOD because I didn’t know what was going on. I was only 14 years old when this happened to me, so as you can imagine, I was frightened. So for the third and final time the spirit of GOD’s voice got really loud and HE said to me, “I said to look in your hand!” This time I looked at my right hand and I saw what looked like a puddle of blood, but here’s the thing: it was not bleeding. Then, right in the center of my right hand I noticed that GOD had put a beautiful cross there.
    By now I had gone to my mother’s room and knocked as hard as I could on her door and when she opened the door and saw my hand, she was shocked and so amazed!!, so we decided to pick up the phone book and call up some of our local pastor’s to tell them what had happened to me. My mother and I came across a particular pastor in Newnan, Georgia, and we decided to call him. My mother started to tell this pastor about all that had happened to me, and this is what the pastor told my mom: “Tell your daughter to show as many people as she can about the cross that GOD had put in your hand”. The pastor also told my mother that GOD had ‘marked your daughter’. It was so amazing and so touching! And yes this is a true story. To this day that same cross is still in my right hand. (I just Love showing people!)

    BUT JESUS BEHELD THEM, AND SAID UNTO THEM, “WITH MEN THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE; BUT WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.” (KJV)
    GOD Bless You!:-)
