Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2018 September 29

“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are. Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness”
(1 Corinthians 3:16-19)

Today’s Morsel: If you could count the numbers of sermons you have heard, how many times would you say that you have heard about not defiling the temple of God?  How many times would you say that you have heard about death because of sin?  Or living a holy and separated life unto God?  I am afraid that if we are not careful, we can hear it so much that it no longer affects us.  We can start to think that it applies to someone else and not us.  We must remember that the Bible is written to the church, not the world.  It’s a book to teach so-called saved people how to live and how to share their newborn experience with others.  People in the world are going to do what sinners do, so stop looking at them as being saved and keep yourself in the love of God.  Your job is to have compassion on them and pull them out of the fire and not allow them to pull you back in.  You are the temple of God.  And if the temple is defiled, who’s going to believe that you are saved?

Sing:  Jesus got ahold of my life and He won’t let me go. Jesus got into my heart, He got into my soul.  I used to be oh so sad, but now I’m happy free and glad, because Jesus got ahold of my life and He won’t let me go.

Thought For Today:  “He, that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy” (Proverbs 29:1).
