Temple Of The Heart

“Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit?” (1 Cor. 6:19)

In 1 Corinthians 6 Paul asks, as if astonished, why the Lord’s people don’t know of the Holy Spirit, that He dwelt and was a driving force in them. It was slow in Christ’s followers to understand that God had the Temple for His people before Christ came, but He now had His people as a temple, or dwelling place.


Who’s Your Master?

“Do you not know that when you present yourselves to someone as slaves for obedience, you are slaves of the one whom you obey, either of sin resulting in death, or of obedience resulting in righteousness?” (Rom 6:16 NASU).

In the ancient world one could become a slave in a number of ways. He could become a slave as spoils of war, be sold like Joseph by someone more powerful, be born into it, or sell himself to his creditor to pay off his debts. The latter is commonly known as a bondservant.


Are You A Fraud?

“In all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us” (Romans 8:37).

In 2009, Sir Terry Pratchett wrote, “I wish I was a real author. I feel like a fraud.” When he wrote this, he had sold over 45 million copies of his books. Queen Elizabeth had knighted him for his literary contributions to England. Today, he has sold over 85 million books.
