Daily Devotional May 18 - Who Is God's Building?

"For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building."
1 Corinthians 3:9

God-thinking demands that we hear what God is saying and then respond accordingly. God-thinking has no alternate agenda of its own. So to really enjoy the benefits of God-thinking we simply need to hear God and then move on what we hear.

We are labourers together with God.
Here in this verse the Bible tells us that we are labourers together with God. I have come to know that about God. We are co-creators with God. God does many supernatural events for us and we provide the events for God to work with. God created all that there is and set it in motion and provides for continued sustenance from the creation and we utilize what God created and convert it into things that we enjoy. We have situations that come up that we have done all we can and we need the hand of God to move on and God moves on them because we ask God to. Co-creating is the way of God and man. We are labourers together.

We are God's husbandry. We are the farmers of the fields God provided. We are the doctors of those who fall ill. We are the mechanics that repair what is broke. We are the teachers that express what we have learned. We are God's workers. God has a plan. We work the plan. We are co-creating together.

We are God's building. Whoa!!! We are God's building? That's right. Our body, mind, soul and spirit houses the indwelling Holy Spirit. We are the temple that God resides in. We are the physical house that the invisible God lives in. We are the sanctuary that God dwells in.
Wouldn't it make sense that we should keep the sanctuary clean?
Wouldn't it make sense that we should honor our life/lifestyle enough to allow the Spirit of God to be seen in our actions?
As God's building should we assist in damaging it?
Should we take special care of the environment that the Holy Spirit resides in?
We should allow the Spirit of God to have free reign in our lives and allow God to be revealed to others through our building. We should keep it clean, maintain it well and have a long term plan for its use. We are the building of God.
