Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 05/20/12

This week’s scripture is from 1 Kings:

“… for the glory of the Lord filled his temple.”   (1 Kings 8:11b)

In Solomon’s day the glory of the Lord filled the temple, but in our time the Holy Spirit resides within us. If you have come to salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ, then the Holy Spirit lives within you, for the Lord has said that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, and the glory of God will shine out of you. Remember who you belong to; remember what He has said and what He has promised. You carry the Holy Spirit of God within you. Overflow with the Spirit and pour out upon others that which He has given to you. Pour out blessing, pour out mercy, pour out healing, pour out the Lord’s grace, pour out His love.

May the glory of the Lord shine forth from you today as a child of the living God.
