Temple of God
I Corinthians 3:16-17 Know you not that you are the temple of God, that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.
Romans 14:7-10 For none of us live to himself, and no man dieth to himself. 8 For whether we live, we live unto the Yahushua; and whether we die; we die unto Yahushua: whether we live therefore, or die, we are Yahushua's. 9 For to this end Messiah both died, and rose, and revived, that He might be LORD both of the dead and the living. 10 But why do you judge your brother? Or why do you set at nought your brother? For we all stand before the judgment seat of Messiah.
Do we love God? Do I restrain myself so as not to make my brother fall?
Having great liberty, do I not let the appearance of sin be in my life for others sake?
I Corinthians 6:12 All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any. VERSES: 19-20 Chapter 7:3; 7:12-16
Do you have kindness and patience for God? Have it for his people also.
We claim to love God. Do we restrain our tongues? Are we willing to sacrifice our feelings and desires for another?
Would you lay down your life for your brother? That doesn't mean die always. Would you out of love for God and your spouse or brother/sister in the Lord hold your tongue, show mercy, bring peace no matter the cost to you?
Has your life been what I want, what I do, what I see, or is it being lived for others and especially the Christ?
Do you want perfection for the saints or self-exaltation?
Am I willing to lay down my life for my brother?
Sometimes living in love is more difficult than dyeing. Isn't it more important to God to die to ones self and let Yahushua live through you in: Love, Joy, Peace, Longsuffering, Gentleness, Goodness, Faith Meekness, Temperance?
Father let your son live through me. Let these fruits grow in me. Let the world see and be drawn to your kingdom by your servant. You have chosen me, Halle lu Yahushua in love.
