Cary Cox, from 2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1. The church is the temple of the living God! Believers in Christ are blessed and honored to be the house of God, the place where God’s presence and message is manifested! We are the family of God, his sons and daughters, in Christ! All of these blessings call us to be holy – the unique people of God. It is time to cleanse the temple!
Cary Cox, from Colossians 3:1-11. It is impossible to live the Christian life without experiencing the miracle of conversion. But since believers are united with Christ through conversion, we are empowered to live Christ-centered lives. This involves “changing clothes” each day: putting off things that do not honor Christ, and putting on lives that are consistent with Christ-centeredness. First, we look at the “dirty clothes” to remove.
