You are Holy!

Do you not know that you are the temple of God,
and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?
If anyone destroys God’s temple,
God will destroy that person;
for the temple of God, which you are, is holy.

How much time do you spend focusing on your flaws and your failures?  How often are you “shoulding” on yourself?  (“I should be this, I should be doing that, I should have done this,”  etc.)  Have you ever stopped to determine whether or not your “shoulds” end up motivating you to improve your life?  Actually, too often these “shoulds” leave us feeling worse about ourselves.  The other day I found myself thinking, “I should be a better Christian.”  When I’m thinking this way, I’m thinking about what I am not, not what I am.   And today’s Word assures us, we ARE holy. 

I am Holy!  I am Holy!  When I consider the price that Christ paid in order to draw me into the love of God, it helps me understand that I am holy, worthy, and even more, worth dying for.  Do you believe this?  

Today you might try using this Word, “I am Holy” as an affirmation to yourself.  I will try it as well and report back on my experiences.  I believe we will have life more abundantly the more that we come to realize our identity as holy people.
