“THE STONE WHICH THE BUILDERS REJECTED IS BECOME THE HEAD OF THE CORNER: THIS WAS THE LORD’S DOING, AND IT IS MARVELOUS IN OUR EYES…” Mark 12:10-11
“Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God,
… For ye are bought with a price…”
Once we commit our lives to Christ, our bodies become the temple of the Holy Spirit.
David prayed in Psalm 51 saying, “Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” He asked the LORD to come in, and cleanse his “temple”, and then, he asked the LORD to renew a right spirit within him.
This week is holy week, and as I remember the events leading up to the crucifixion, I reflect on how Christ “cleansed the temple”, and how, because of His sacrafice, and by His blood, I too have been made clean, and by His Holy Spirit, a right spirit is renewed within me.
Thank You, Lord Jesus.
