He Lives in YOU!
Let’s play a game. ng What do you think of when you hear the word temple? (Imagine the Jeopardy theme music playing here) Okay times up. Do you have your list?
Here is mine:
If you read this list the way I did, you thought yes, yes, yes, yes, and wait I’m not so sure about that last one.
1 Corinthians 6:19 NLT reminds us “Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God” You do not belong to yourself” Do we live each day in awe of this fact? GOD DWELLS IN US!
Scripture tells us:
- God bought us at a high price. (1 Corinthian 6:20) Jesus death on the cross redeemed us and gave us access to the Holy of Holies.
- We can boldly stand in His presence. There we will receive the gift of grace and mercy. (Hebrews 4:16)
- The Holy Spirit was given to us. (1 Corinthians 6:19)
- In turn, we need to honor God. (1 Corinthians 6:19)
- Did you mess up? – recognize your imperfection and see #2.
You do not belong to yourself but you are in great hands. The Holy God of the universe dwells in you!
