Oh Lord, thank You for everything You have done for me. Thank You, Lord, for paying the penalty for my sins on the cross. Although it was some time ago that all this took place, I can still imagine the pain and anguish You must have gone through for the sake of me and all of mankind. The very thought of You suffering is hard to take in and bear, but I know it had to happen. You were always called to be the Lamb of God, who was to take away the sins of the world. And as a believer, I know it would be silly of me to create a building for You to dwell in. You were never supposed to be confined to a box, but to indwell in us. Therefore, I come to You daily in earnest prayer, that the Spirit may be with me at all times. This is when I am made much stronger to resist temptation and do Your will, than when I am in the flesh alone. I stumble when I think I have everything figured out. This is when I become the weakest, for I think that I am better than others in my pride. Thankfully, this doesn’t happen as often anymore. You have ripped out of my life every ounce of pride and replaced it with Your love. So I will continue in Your love, that others will also experience Your love through me. Shine brightly, Lord, even through a person like me. Whatever I can do for Your kingdom, move me to the front of the line. I am here to serve You and do as You say. You have my heart! I love You, Jesus. Amen.
Acts 17:22-25 (KJV)
22 Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.
23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, To The Unknown God. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.
24 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands;
25 Neither is worshipped with men’s hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;
God does not dwell in temples made with hands. Therefore, building up a temple for God, as Mormons do, is wrong and uncalled for.
