Don’t you know that your body is a temple that belongs to the Holy Spirit? The Holy Spirit, whom you received from God, lives in you. You don’t belong to yourselves. You were bought for a price. So bring glory to God in the way you use your body.” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20 GW)
Read the two versus above carefully. When we asked Jesus to come into our heart we surrendered our life for His. We are now a Temple (Remember, we are a three-part being… spirit, soul and body.) that belongs to the Holy Spirit. That means we no longer belong to ourselves. The Holy Spirit, whom we received from God, now lives IN us.
HIT THE PAUSE BUTTON! Are we doing what those versus said?
IF – we are a Temple, and the Holy Spirit really does live INSIDE of us… would we change our way of living, would we treat people differently, would we start doing what it takes to get closer to God, and the list could go on and on.
Well, if you are a REAL Christian, go ahead and erase that “IF” because we ARE a Temple and the Holy Spirit really does live INSIDE of us. I can only speak for myself, in the world we live in, I want to know God more than ever. And not just for me, but for others who need Him.
Take some time when you can, and look on the inside, down and deep so you can find out WHO YOU BELONG TO…. You or the Holy Spirit???
