TEMPLE-HOUSE

“Your body is your house; your mentality is your garden; your character is your earth. All these are subject to your spirit, the Master of the House.”
In this temple-house of God your thoughts and feelings as well as the members of your body can hold devotional services daily by doing all things for the Lord only. There is no piece of work but what may be a sacrament and an opportunity for bringing forward the high and holy One who is on His way proving Himself All in All.”


“To him who has found the truth that work is joy, and activity which blesses others is ever divine, there is no need of a special day of rest, for he rests in working, never knowing weariness or bondage.
‘The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath’ (Mark 2:27), and was intended from the first to be a reminder to man that ‘there remaineth a rest for him,’ a final attainment of perpetual rest in the midst of, and one with, ceaseless activity–the divine paradox, identity of rest and activity.”

 – Annie Rix Militz, Spiritual Housekeeping: A Study in Concentration in the Busy Life, 1910


There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.
10 For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from his.

Hebrews 4:9-10
