WE ARE TEMPLES

 
1 Corinthians 6:19,20


"Do you not know that your body is a temple 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 body." NIV


"What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: Therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's." KJV



Among our Christian priorities should be to please God with our bodies, knowing they are His temples. How do we treat our bodies? Do we eat right keeping our bodies healthy and within weight limits? Do we engage in things that harm our bodies--too much sun, smoking, not getting enough sleep or exercise? Do we really understand that our bodies are the dwelling place of the Holy Spirit. If we are sincere in our walk with the Lord, we will respect our bodies so the Holy Spirit will be welcomed and comfortable within us.


Heavenly Father, we ask earnestly that You will help us to honor our bodies as the temples of the Holy Spirit and so honor this privilege that we treat our bodies respectfully and in a healthy manner. We pray in the name of Jesus, Amen.
