Purity and Sin

I Peter 2:24 says that Jesus 'Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness...' My own sins? Such miserable, petty, weak, offensive abominations? I cannot fully grasp this...the Sacrificial Lamb. Then, in I Corinthians 6:19 it says: 'Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?' My body is a temple? It could in no way be as pleasing as the carved-cedar paneled and gold gilded sanctuary built by Solomon so long ago; could it? Jesus, the very Son of God, took my sins to the cross and now I am made a temple for the Spirit of God? What amazing Grace the LORD God must have! What can I say or think in response to this?...

Redirected updates

Well, orientation was dull yesterday, and now my throat has been bothering me... Since I am tired and want to rest today, I will redirect you to my geocities page, where I have recently updates with random entries on dreams, thoughts, etc:

Also, my lj has a fresh and warm Mediterranean layout :D Ahhh. This means I should play Rome, but lately I have been too busy! ;_;
