I still have the email he wrote to me, finishing up our conversation.
Holiness Your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you.But such a life is far different than keeping a few rules. In this process, God not only forgives my sin (John ), but he tells me I've been bought with a pricethe precious blood of Jesus (1 Corinthians ).God set me apart for himself and moves me from the world's kingdom into his kingdom (John 3:5). After all, didn't King David dance before God (2 Samuel )?
During my twenties, I saw many of those rules for "How to Be the World's Best Christian" cited as examples of legalism by fellow Christians.
But returning to them didn't feel like the right answer.
