My Thought

Here it is the second day of 2014 and our scripture this morning is from Psalm 48:9, David says that we have thought about the steadfast love of the Lord.  It is in the middle of your temple.  Today the temple of the Holy Spirit is us.  Paul reminds us in 1 Cor 6:19-20 that we are the temple of the Holy Spirit.  We have been bought with a price and we are not our own.  One of the promises that we have been given through this scripture is the promise of love.  When we think of God our first thought is that He is love.  John reminds us in 1 John 4:8, that God is love.  It is who He is and what He is all about.  He always looks at  us with eyes of love.  We are the apple of His eye and the object of His love.  God cannot love us anymore than He currently does.  He is not mad at us, He loves us.  When we think of His love it helps us to focus on Him.  It makes it easier to love Him with every fibre of our being.  It also helps us to love others who are made in the image of God.  When we look at ourselves as the temple of the Holy Spirit it allows us to remember that we are the objects of His love.  If we continue to focus on that thought it also helps us to love ourselves and in turn love others.  Today think about God’s steadfast love.  That love that never changes.  Remember that you are the temple of the Holy Spirit and walk in love towards God and others.
