Something Within

Have you that something, that burning desire?

Have you that something that never doth tire?

Oh, if you have it –that Heavenly Fire!

Then let the world know there is something within.

Something within me that holdeth the reins,

Something within me that banishes pain,

Something within me I cannot explain,

All that I know there is something within.

Hymn- “Something Within” By L.E. Campbell

Temple Cleansed

This is holy week, and each day this week, I’d planned to post a scripture or quote about this very special time, but today, after posting the verse on “Jesus The Cornerstone”, I thought about of how Jesus cleansed the temple, and I wanted to write on something more…  I started thinking about how, 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… (Create in me a clean heart), and once his temple, was cleansed, he wanted the LORD to renew a right spirit within him.

This week, as I remember the events leading up to the crucifixion, I reflect on how Christ “cleansed the temple”, and how, because of His love, 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.
