TOPIC: YOU ARE GOD'S TEMPLE
TEXT: I CORINTHIANS 3:16-23
Paul reminded the bickering and divisive Corinthians that, as Christians, we are the temple of God the father who offered Jesus Christ for our eternal life. The presence of the Holy Spirit in you makes you the temple of God. That explains why we need to be careful with our body.
If we, Christians, realized that God Himself, in the person of the Holy Spirit, really dwells within our bodies, we would be far more careful about what we eat, drink, look at or read. No wonder, Paul said, “But I buffet my body and make it my slave, lest possibly, after I have preached to other, I myself should be disqualified” (I Corinthians 9:27).
Do you know that abortion, alcoholism, drug addiction and prostitution are in God's eye an attempt to destroy HIs Temple?
Thank You, Father, for the privilege and honour of becoming the temple of God.
