I would like you my friend to realise something that you probably are familiar with, that you are the temple of God, or house of God, and that the Spirit of God lives in you. "God works in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure" Philippians 2:13. "For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building" 1 Corinthians 3:9. What that means is, you’re not your own, God owns you. He should dictate in you how you should behave, serve and worship him. You don’t do it anyway you like. He said to Moses, "let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them. According to all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it" Exodus 25:8-9. And when you worship, "the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth" John 4:23. Jesus laid us an example of how.
His building, his church is not built the carnal way, but he who builds with him must be very careful what material he uses to build on that foundation already laid - Jesus Christ, knowing there is going to come a testing at Christ’s Judgment Day to see what kind of material each builder has used. Those who are in Christ Jesus, do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. "Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come" John 16:13.
The Holy Spirit is the wisdom of God in you.
"Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness" 1 Corinthians 3:18-19.
Let no man deceive himself, let no man glory in men either, but allow the Spirit of God to dwell in you, to make you grow. The Holy Spirit, his job is to lead and guide you into all truth, he does not present his own ideas, as that we see happening these days, but he passes on to you what he has heard.
"Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you. And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost" John 20:21-22.
You house the Spirit of God my friend, so that he can help you serve God according to his will, and you, me and the Spirit of God together, are coworkers of the mysteries of God, we complete the temple of God together. He shouldn’t grieve while in us.
