Faith in the Lord: 2 Corinthians 4:16-18.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 ESV

16 So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. 17 For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, 18 as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

Temple Of The Holy Spirit: 1 Corinthians 6:19-20.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

19 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, 20 for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body

Via Verse by Verse Commentary

Jesus paid the price for our sins at Calvary. His blood was the purchase price. Jesus delivered us from our sin by purchasing the price of our sin by shedding His blood. Jesus met all the holy demands of God’s justice by this payment. God owns the rights to our bodies. That is why we glorify Him with our bodies. God dwells in the body of the believer. A building is not the sanctuary; believers are the sanctuary. The believer receives the Holy Spirit at the point of salvation (Ephesians 1:13,14). The Holy Spirit seals his eternal salvation immediately at the point of initial salvation. The word “from” emphasizes the supernatural origin of the indwelling Holy Spirit in us.

Need Love, Ask Jesus: 1 Corinthians 13:4-8

1 Corinthians 13:4-8

4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.

Dear Lord, I invite You to make Yourself at home in my heart. Send my roots deep into the soil of Your marvelous love. Grant me the power to understand its scope—its width, length, height, and depth. Allow me the privilege of experiencing and recognizing that love every day. And Lord, as You teach me more about Your love for me, please fulfill the promise that accompanies a deeper understanding of this gift—fill me with the fullness of life and power that comes from You alone. In this I pray, Amen
