We Are The Temples Of The Holy Spirit

1 Corinthians 6:19-20–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.


As Christians our bodies have become the temple of the Holy Spirit.  He has been given to us by God and he indwells us.  We are not our own for we have been bought with a price.  That price was the broken body and shed blood of Jesus as he took our place and died for our sins.  Our bodies and our spirits are God’s; therefore we are to glorify God in our body and in our spirit.  We will glorify Him as his life and nature flows in and through us to bear much fruit.  We are to display the character of God in the form of the fruit of the Spirit.  We are to display the power of God in the form of the gifts of the Spirit.  We are to let our light so shine before men that they may see our good works and glorify our Father which is in heaven.  We are to submit ourselves to God that He can do of His good pleasure through us.  We are to yield the members of our bodies unto God as instruments of righteousness in His hands.  TO GOD BE THE GLORY.
