Temple of God

Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Do you ever say to yourself I don’t see any miracles by God? Do you feel connected to God at all through the Holy Spirit? What words and thoughts are coming out of you? You see our bodies are the “Temple of God”. In order for the Holy Spirit to dwell in us we must keep our Temples clean.

What does it mean to keep your Temple clean? Try to keep yourself Holy and pure, refrain from things that offend God. You can’t expect to be watching pornography or violent movies and having The Holy Spirit live inside you. Remember blasphemy against The Holy Spirit is an unforgivable sin.

Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days.” They replied, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and you are going to raise it in three days?”  But the temple he had spoken of was his body. John 2:19-21

 

Jesus prophesied about his resurrection, referencing his body as the “Temple of God”. Everyone thought he was talking about the physical temple they worshipped at. But we should treat our bodies as our Temple of God or church.

Would you curse at church or watch pornography? No of course not, most people try to be on there best behavior and dress there best when going to Church. This is how we should treat our bodies every day. If we want The Holy Spirit to dwell in us, we must strive to keep our bodies Holy. Remember we can do all things through Christ who gives us strength Amen

    I love these breakdowns of the mighty Word of God. The Holy Spirit is definitely within you brother! Keep fighting the good fight of faith!
    1Co 15:55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
    1Co 15:56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
    1Co 15:57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
    1Co 15:58 Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.
