Bible Verse for Today
“Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.” (2 Timothy 2:19)
God wants His presence to find full expression in and through us, but for that to happen, we must be good hosts of His presence. We have a role to play in God’s kingdom, he has placed us in a particular position so that we can represent him well there.
Not that we are the ones to cleanse ourselves from every filthiness of the flesh and spirit, and perfect holiness in the fear of God, it is of God to cleanse us. We are the ones to create the conducive environment for God to have full expression in and through us. Don’t be deceived, to think that regardless of what you do and how you live, God will have full expression in your life. That kind of mind is against the truth of God’s Word.
There are things that you will refrain your hand from touching, and your eyes from Watching. There is a place you must stop going to so you can be the carrier of God’s glory.
There are rewards laid up for those who will diligently seek the Lord. There are promises in the Word for Honoring God in our bodies. Our body is also the temple of God, we are the steward, we must protect it from things that can defile it.
It is our duty to remain a good steward, someone who God can trust. These promises are God’s incentives to thrill us into separating ourselves from the filthiness of the flesh and the spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.
