Study Guide Rhapsody of Realities June 2 2023: WE’RE HIS HOLY SANCTUARY
Written By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome
The key takeaway from today’s devotional is the profound understanding that as believers, we are the temple of God, with His Spirit dwelling within us. This divine indwelling sanctifies us, making us holy and blameless in His sight. Our sanctity surpasses that of Mount Sinai, which was declared holy merely by God’s presence. As God’s holy sanctuary, we are called to walk in the light of this truth, reigning over sin, Satan, and circumstances, and serving God joyously in love. This understanding of our divine sanctity as believers is a powerful testament to our faith and a cornerstone of our spiritual identity.
1 Corinthians 3:16 – “Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?”
- God’s Holy Sanctuary: Believers are the temple of God, with His Spirit dwelling within them. This divine indwelling sanctifies and makes them holy and blameless in God’s sight. The presence of God in believers exceeds the holiness of Mount Sinai.
- Our Heavenly Calling: As holy brethren and partakers of the heavenly calling, believers stand in God’s presence as people who are holy, faultless, and innocent. This divine positioning is a result of God’s peace and reconciliation through Christ.
- Sanctified by God’s Word: Through the washing of water by the Word, Christ sanctifies and cleanses the Church, presenting believers to Himself as glorious, without spot, wrinkle, or blemish. This truth affirms believers’ holy and blameless nature.
- Living in Victory: Understanding our sanctity empowers believers to walk in the light of this truth. By reigning over sin, Satan, and circumstances, believers can serve God joyously in love, experiencing victory in every aspect of life.
