The Holy Spirit Indwells You

Read

Don't you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Those who belong to Christ Jesus have nailed the passions and desires of their sinful nature to his cross and crucified them there. Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit's leading in every part of our lives. Let us not become conceited, or provoke one another, or be jealous of one another. Galatians 5:24-26

Reflect

J.T. Thomas, former player for the Pittsburgh Steelers, says that when he was a young man his mother would request to meet with him and his date before they went out for the evening. His mother would ask, "Where are you taking Jesus tonight?" Her question was a great reminder that the Spirit is always with you.

What an amazing truth! The Holy Spirit lives in you! Wherever you go, He goes with you. You are never alone. This is both comforting and convicting.
