Continuing from last week.  From the beginning, whether a person lived before Jesus or after Jesus, salvation
comes from the indwelling of the Holy Spirit.

1 Corinthians 3:16  Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in
you?

1 Corinthians 6:19  Do you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you
received from God?

2 Corinthians 1:22  He anointed us, set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a de-
posit, guaranteeing what is to come.

Galations 6:8  from the Spirit will reap eternal life.

Ephesians 4:30  And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you are sealed for the day of
redemption. 

Again, this next verse really sums it up.

2 Thessalonians 2:13  … from the beginning God chose you to be saved through the sanctifying work of 
the Spirit and through belief in the truth.

When a person has belief or faith in Christ, that person automatically receives the Holy Spirit.  Your body 
becomes the temple of the Holy Spirit who dwells within you.  At this point the Holy Spirit covers
your sinful soul.  He covers your unrighteousness with his righteousness.  At this point you have re-
ceived salvation and can enter heaven.  This is not by any work that you have done to earn your salvation but
by the Holy Spirit living in you.  

If the above is true and it is, this leads to another question.  Why did Jesus Christ, the Son of God, come to earth,
live his life, die on the cross and rise from the grave?  We will read the answer next week.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
