“Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.”
1 Corinthians 3:16-17

Strong stuff …
Your temple is holy;
My temple is holy.
When I defile another’s or my own the consequence of destruction is coming my way.
It’s God’s promise.
When I purify another’s vessel or my own … peace is my attainment.
It’s God’s promise.
Our conduct is significant to God because, through it, we are either purified or defiled.
Christ possesses and inhabits the soul that has found deliverance through Him … and He won’t accommodate private or public sins of any kind.
He works through pure vessels that are in constant communion with Him.
Gratifying the flesh does not lead to satisfying the soul; crucifying the flesh is the only way.
It’s not an easy way but it’s the right way ... the holy way.
Take the high road in your life and turn your back on all that suggests and induces fleshly defilement of any kind.
God will bless you in the most profound and personal ways … leave it to Him and the outcome will be your just reward.
May God’s Spirit sanctify you and give you the strength to be holy.
You belong to the Lord;
You are His.
