I had to share a Word I heard on Christian Radio today. My hope is that it will bless you as much as it did me!
The 10 commandments or the 10 Promises! The 10 commandments were written on stone (we read this in Ex 20). When the Holy Spirit writes them on our hearts they become the 10 Promises. They become promises just by the way we read them. Do you have trouble stealing? Thou Shalt Not Steal is a promise. With God's power, I won't steal!
My problem is food! That is why I am typing this now! Many of you struggle as I do. When I heard this preacher say what he said, it took the law to a different level for me. I am the temple of the Holy Spirit doesn't mean, I have to watch everything I eat or I am violating His temple, it means that I can rely on the power of the Holy Spirit and in His strength, I am the temple of the Holy Spirit - I CAN DO IT!
I guess it is a matter of perspective. The law, when written on the tablet of our hearts, is more than law, it is a promise of freedom.
