The Holy Spirit Dwells Within Me……So What?

1 Corinthians 3:16-17 & 6: 19-20

My body is a temple of the Holy Spirit….

I have a physical life and I have a spiritual life.

I receive spiritual refreshment every day as I draw on the benefits of God’s Holy Spirit dwelling in me.

I am not alone.

I carry in my body, the capacity to expose God in ways the world can’t readily comprehend unless the Word becomes flesh.

My hands, my heart and my tears bear witness that God is real.

The Spirit prompts me to be less cautionary and to live an adventuresome life to the benefit of all humanity.

I am a jar of clay.  I have treasure inside.

A treasure is no good if left in the purse.  The Spirit, who dwells within, longs to be unleashed in my everyday life.  Crack me open, if you must, but work in me, though me and in spite of me.

Because God’s Spirit dwells within me, I need not fear being unprepared for life’s unexpected turns.

I can face trouble, trial and tragedy.

I am not alone.

When I pray, the Spirit helps me in ways I don’t understand.

When I listen to the Spirit’s prompting and act on it, the Kingdom comes and God’s will is done on earth as it is in heaven.

The Scriptures penetrate deeper when the Spirit helps wedge open my reluctant heart.

Knowing that the Spirit dwells within me, I increasingly grow less tolerant of ungodly thoughts and attitudes.

God’s presence within me prompts me to yearn the Day when I will dwell with Him in eternity.

I carry the Divine Presence within me.

I am not alone.

I am not alone.

I am not alone.
