My Utmost For His Highest : "The Temple Of The Holy Ghost"

December 5, 2011

Only in the throne will I be greater than thou.
Genesis 41:40
I have to account to God for the way in which I rule my body under
His domination. Paul said he did not "frustrate the grace of God" -
make it of no effect. The grace of God is absolute, the salvation of
Jesus is perfect, it is done for ever. I am not being saved, I am
saved; salvation is as eternal as God's throne; the thing for me to
do is to work out what God works in. "Work out your own salvation," I
am responsible for doing it. It means that I have to manifest in this
body the life of the Lord Jesus, not mystically, but really and
emphatically. "I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection."
Every saint can have his body under absolute control for God. God has
made us to have government over all the temple of the Holy Spirit,
over imaginations and affections. We are responsible for these, and
we must never give way to inordinate affections. Most of us are much
sterner with others than we are in regard to ourselves; we make
excuses for things in ourselves whilst we condemn in others things to
which we are not naturally inclined.
"I beseech you," says Paul, "present your bodies a living sacrifice."
The point to decide is this - "Do I agree with my Lord and Master
that my body shall be His temple?' If so, then for me the whole of
the law for the body is summed up in this revelation, that my body is
the temple of the Holy Ghost.
