To Catch a Theif

  "Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received (as A Gift) from God? You are not your own.  You were bought with a price (purchased with a preciousness and paid for, made His own). So then, honor God and bring glory to Him in your body." I Corinthians 6:19,20 AMP

Christ paid the ultimate price to inter our body and make it His temple dwelling place.

 "I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, he who does not enter by the door into the sheepfold, but climbs up some other way (elsewhere, from some other quarter) is a thief and a robber." John 1:10 AMP

 The thief has not paid the price to enter our bodies, Christ did, and if a man truly loves you he will pay the price with his life in Holy Matrimony, giving his life for her as Christ has done.

 "Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her." Ephesians 5:25

 A thief is out to steal your salt. Don't let a man talk you into bed unless he pays the price to be there. If he doesn't, he is just a thief.

 Ladies don't let a man sweet talk you into bed unless he has paid the price to be there.

 "I am the Good Shepherd, The Good Shepherd risks and lays down His (own) life for the sheep. But the hired servant (he who merely services for wages and is not himself concerned about the sheep (cares nothing for them). I am the Good Shepherd; and I know and recognize My own, and My own know and recognize Me- Even as (truly as) the Father knows Me and I also know the Father-and am giving My (very own) life and laying it down on behalf of the sheep." John 10:11-15

Praises be to our Glorious Master and Savior, Christ our Lord!

In His service,
