1 Corinthians 3:16 - Do you not know that you are a temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?
The holiness we are seeking is not a legislative or legalistic set of rules; it is Christ's very own quality of life. The Holy Spirit works in us not merely a new desire to love, but He imparts to us Christ's very own love.
We develop more than just a general faith in Jesus; we actually begin believing like Jesus, with His quality of faith. It is God in us that makes us holy.
I approach God with great trembling, great joy, deep worship, and holy fear, who has called me unto Himself for His own will and purpose.
Hebrews 11:1 - Now, faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen.
AS A DEED ENABLES ME TO LAY CLAIM TO PROPERTY THAT BELONGS TO ME, SO MY FAITH ENABLES ME TO LAY CLAIM TO GOD'S PROMISES THAT BELONG TO ME.
IF I BUILD MY FAITH - MY TITLE DEED - ON GOD'S WORD, IT WON'T MATTER IF THE DEVIL HITS MY BODY, ATTACKS MY FINANCES, OR TRIES TO STEAL MY PEACE. I CAN KICK HIM OFF MY PROPERTY BECAUSE MY FAITH WILL BE THE PROOF OF OWNERSHIP I NEED.
NOTHING CAN STAND IN MY WAY!
I BUILD MY HOUSE OF FAITH AND MOVE IN!
