Hello to All.
I am so happy to share this column with all who read it. Reflections Column will share numerous messages over time. This message is a continuation the last where I spoke about the temple and how we as individuals should think of our bodies as God's temple and keep them clean and holy. Let us not worry what the other person thinks but let us focus on our temple and our walk with God. In the book of 2nd Corinthians it says "Touch no unclean thing and I will receive you." 2nd Corinthians 6:17.
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to there needs that it may benefit those who listen. Ephesians 4:29
Get rid of all bitterness, rage, and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. Ephesians 4:31-32
Be imitators of God therefore, as dearly loved children. Ephesians 5:1
But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality or of any kind of impurity, or of greed because these are improper for Gods holy people. Nor should there be obscenity foolish talk or coarse joking which is out of place. For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure, or greedy person, such a man is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of God. Ephesians 5:3-5.
These words are directly from the Bible and for all who read this, I hope these words are taken as seriously as I take them each and every day. Thank God for giving you life, thank him for each and every thing you have. Pray to him often. Repent to him and ask him to forgive you if your temple is unholy. Ask him to give you the strength to make your temple clean and holy. He is there, he will help you, he really will. I believe in him and I trust him with my whole heart. He will be there for you too, just open your heart to him and he will love you and protect you all the days of your life, just talk to him and be thankful for what you have. God is wonderful and I want everyone who reads this to say a prayer right now and ask God to forgive you, repent, be truly sorry, and never go back to unholiness. Have faith, never give up, and trust in God. I do.
