DEVELOP A SENSITIVITY AND CONSCIOUSNESS TO THE HOLY SPIRIT WITHIN

1 Cor 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
1 Cor 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? 20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
2 Cor 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

All the verses in the Bible that tell us our body is His temple were written to the same group that He wrote about the supernatural manifestations of the spirit to. Since the manifestations or gifts come from the Spirit in us we need to be conscious and sensitive to Who is in us. We should never for the sake of another human being mistreat the Person of the Holy Spirit in us. They may live with us but He lives in us. The third Person of the Trinity is in us and He is susceptible to personal treatment.

A. Acts 5:3 – He can be lied to.
B. Acts 7:51 – He can be resisted.
C. Matthew 12:31 – He can be blasphemed.
D. 1 Thessalonians 5:1911206092_10206556728587651_2978073387835557565_n – He can be quenched.
E. Ephesians 4:30 – He can be grieved.
F. Hebrews 10:29 – He can be despised.
