What’s in Your Body?

There’s a great little section of scripture in Ephesians 2 that says, “And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.” How amazing: that the King of kings, and the Lord of lords, the Creator of the Universe, has built us together so we actually host the very Spirit of God!

 

God is not far off. God is not distant, or silent, or inoperable. He lives inside us. And not only does He live inside us, but the book of John talks about how the Spirit will lead us into all truth, He will guide and direct us. Embedded in every Christ follower is a GPS to the Father and to the Son. Embedded in any Christ follower is this idea that God has formed you, built you, constructed you, and assembled you for one reason: so He could be housed there—the Spirit of God housed in your body.

 

So, if that is true, what difference has it made in your life? The Spirit is not your conscience. Only the Spirit of God can cleanse you from all unrighteousness and give you the ability to hear and feel Him. Just as food and water are important for a person to live in the natural, for a Christian, without the Holy Spirit given to you to fill that God shaped vacuum, your walk with God is limited and impaired. His Spirit only dwells in people who love Him and have surrendered their life to Him. So, let me ask you: what’s in your body?
