“God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple.” (1 Corinthians 3:17)
God’s Spirit lives in us, so in life and doctrine we honour God.
In the Old Testament, God lived among His people in the temple. Everyone had to come to Jerusalem to worship Him. He now lives in His Church through His Spirit – worldwide in many places. We no longer have to come to one place but are sent into the entire world.
That we are God’s temple is a great privilege. At the same time, it is a great responsibility. It is a call: make something of your life! Build your life house with precious materials that do not burn on the day of the judgment.
There are so many things that we can emphasize in the church. But it must be Jesus. There are so many things that we can worry about in this world. But if it is not according to God’s will, it has no value for eternity.
We are part of God’s holy temple. That calls us to a holy life. Do you live a holy life?
