I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy loving kindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name. (KJV)
For Christians, God's temple is one of two related things: either the Christian's body (1 Cor. 6:19-20) or the group of people who make up His church (1 Cor. 3:16). Because of the flaws in many of the people in our churches, a lot of other people are hypercritical of them. They see many of the so-called Christians saying one thing and acting differently. But God's church is precious to Him and it should be to all of us. Anyone who destroys His church through attrition will be dealt with harshly.
Our Heavenly Father,
Thank You for this day and all of Your blessings in our lives. Abba Lord, have Your Holy Spirit strengthen our commitment to follow Your laws and do Your will. We praise You for Your steadfast love and faithfulness revealed in the preservation of Your church throughout history. We promise to cherish the church and do all we can to help it grow and mature to be more as You wish for it to be.
We lift our prayers up to You in the Name of Your Son, Jesus the Christ…Amen.
Good morning to one and all. My thoughts and prayers are with you and yours for a safe and wonder-filled day.
May God Bless,
