Daily in the Word – February 1st

Date: 9 Feb 2018 Comments: 0

Here is my thought from my reading today. Many people say that they are not sure when/if they want to accept Christ because they think they aren’t ready or have to be ‘better’ before they can accept him. However, if God made our bodies his temple, he will cleanse it just like he did in Jerusalem when he made his triumphant entry: “Jesus entered the Temple and began to drive out all the people buying and selling animals for sacrifice. He knocked over the tables of the money changers and the chairs of those selling doves. He said to them, “The Scriptures declare, ‘My Temple will be called a house of prayer,’ but you have turned it into a den of thieves!” (Matthew 21:12-13, NLT). That is to say that once you take the Holy Spirit into your heart, you better believe that the first thing that will happen is that you will be cleansed. I will say, however, that this doesn’t always feel good but it ends up being worth it in the end.
