Rest In Christ

Still They Speak

“There is in Christ rest for God’s people, when exercised with afflictions. If a person labour under great bodily weakness, or under some disease that causes frequent and strong pains, such things will tire out so feeble a creature as man. It made to such an one be a comfort and an effectual support to think that he has a Mediator who knows by experience what pain is; who by his pain has purchased eternal ease and pleasure for him; and who will make his brief sufferings to work out a far more exceeding delight, to be bestowed when he shall rest from his labours and sorrows.”– Jonathan Edwards “Jonathan Edwards On Knowing Christ” (Banner of Truth) pp. 179

1 Corinthians 6:12-20

12) All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.

13) Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for fornication, but for the Lord; and the Lord for the body.

14) And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by His own power.

15) Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid.

16) What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith He, shall be one flesh.

17) But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.

18) Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.

19) What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

20) For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
1-е Коринфянам 6:12-20

12) Все мне позволительно, но не все полезно; все мне позволительно, но ничто не должно обладать мною.

13) Пища для чрева, и чрево для пищи; но Бог уничтожит и то и другое. Тело же не для блуда, но для Господа, и Господь для тела.

14) Бог воскресил Господа, воскресит и нас силою Своею.

15) Разве не знаете, что тела ваши суть члены Христовы? Итак отниму ли члены у Христа, чтобы сделать [их] членами блудницы? Да не будет!

16) Или не знаете, что совокупляющийся с блудницею становится одно тело [с нею]? ибо сказано: два будут одна плоть.

17) А соединяющийся с Господом есть один дух с Господом.

18) Бегайте блуда; всякий грех, какой делает человек, есть вне тела, а блудник грешит против собственного тела.

19) Не знаете ли, что тела ваши суть храм живущего в вас Святаго Духа, Которого имеете вы от Бога, и вы не свои?

20) Ибо вы куплены [дорогою] ценою. Посему прославляйте Бога и в телах ваших и в душах ваших, которые суть Божии.
