Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
-- 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Are you honest with God? I mean, judgment-day-honest with God?
Think about it. We all sin. But are you actively dealing with the sins in your life that only you and God know about? Are you getting real with God by admitting your weaknesses…your compulsive thoughts or worries…or your past secrets?
The great need is for the Church of Jesus Christ to be revived. And the only way that will happen is when individual men and women of God get real, admit their junk, and ask God for a spiritual breakthrough where there has been a spiritual breakdown.
The only way for God’s people…you and me…to change the world is for us to make sure our lives are real…honest…and genuine. And through the power of God living in and through us we can live that kind of life.
It’s an amazing thought that as believers in Jesus Christ, God dwells in us through His Holy Spirit…as we see in today’s verse. If you’re a follower of Christ, God lives in you. He lives in me. And through that indwelling power you can get beyond your compulsive thoughts…your worries…and the bondage of your past secrets.
In the power of the Holy Spirit, get real with God today. And ask God for that spiritual breakthrough where there has only been spiritual breakdown.
I pray you will get honest with God today…and determine to glorify Him in your life today…and every day!
Ask god for a spiritual breakthrough in your life where there has been spiritual breakdown.
