DO YOU NOT KNOW THAT YOU ARE THE TEMPLE OF GOD, AND THAT THE SPIRIT OF GOD DWELLS IN YOU? (1 Cor 3:16)
WHOEVER LOVES ME WILL KEEP MY WORD, AND MY FATHER WILL LOVE HIM, AND WE WILL COME TO HIM AND MAKE OUR DWELLING WITH HIM. (Jn. 14:23)
I wonder how many of us stop and think what this means when we drink to excess, eat to excess, or use drugs that harm our bodies? When we allow ourselves to eat so much we get fat and destroy ourselves, don’t eat healthy, don’t act responsibly? God expects us to take care of this TEMPLE he has given us. It is time to stop and think before doing something destructive to ourselves, or to harm another person who is also the TEMPLE OF GOD.
GOD MADE US TO KNOW HIM, LOVE HIM, AND SERVE HIM SO WE CAN BE IN HEAVEN WITH HIM. But it is up to us to ask for His Grace to help us do these things.
PRAYER: NOT TO US, O LORD, BUT TO YOUR NAME GIVE THE GLORY. (You could say this prayer, during the day and night.)
Psalm15: Lord, who shall be admitted to your tent and dwell on your holy mountain?
He who walks without fault; he who acts with justice and speaks the truth from his heart; he who does not slander with his tongue;
he who does no wrong to his brother, who casts no slur on his neighbor, who holds the godless in disdain, but honors those who fear the Lord;
he who keeps his pledge, come what may; who takes no interest on a loan and accepts no bribes against the innocent. Such a man will stand firm for ever.
Glory to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen
