Wilberforce: whose throne?

Monday, September 22, 2014
    Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him; for God’s temple is sacred, and you are that temple.
    —1 Corinthians 3:16-17 (NIV)
    God insists that He set up His throne in the heart, and reign in it, without a rival. If we keep Him from His right, it will not matter by what competitor.
    ... William Wilberforce (1759-1833), Real Christianity, ed. James Houston, Colorado Springs, CO: David C. Cook, 2005, p. 98 (see the book)
    See also 1 Cor. 3:16-17; Matt. 6:24; 1 Cor. 6:19-20; 10:21-22; 2 Cor. 6:16; Eph. 2:19-22; Col. 3:5; Rev. 3:20
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I reject all other claims on my allegiance.
