" Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 17 If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are." 1 Corinthians 3:16-17


Do you not know that you are the temple of God? There are  two answers to this question: yes, I know that I am the temple of God or no, I didn't know that I am the temple of God. So what is your answer? 

And then a follow up question, do you not know that the Spirit of God dwells in you?  Again it's a YES I KNOW OR NO I DIDN'T, answer. What is your answer?  Is it, YES I know the Spirit of God dwells in me or NO, I didn't know that the Spirit of God dwell in me?

If your answer is, yes I know, what have you done with what you know? It's one thing to know something and it's another to live in the reality of what you know. Are you living as the temple of God?  Are you living as someone in whom the Spirit of God dwells? 


A temple is a building used primarily for worship! Its primary purpose is to serve as a place of worship! It's a place dedicated for worship! 

For example, the temple Solomon built was designed from foundation to roof with none other purpose but as a place of habitation for the Lord!  Nothing else but as a place to worship the only true God!  Everything about the temple from the outside to the inside depicts its purpose: as a place of worship!  God's property!  The temple belongs to God!  The temple is God's property from the inside out! 


You are God's temple!  You are meant for worship!  You are supposed to be God's habitation!  You are God's property!  Are you living as one? 


God's temple is not for every use!  It is for holy use only!  You don't take dirty and unholy things to the temple, if you have the fear of God! 

The temple can be defiled! It can be defiled through sin!  It can be defiled through unholy sacrifice! It can be defiled through abomination! Be very careful therefore how you live as the temple of God, for if you mess around, God will let you be destroyed like the temple in Jerusalem! If you defile God's temple, you will become vulnerable to the attack of the enemy! The Lord will leave you and you will become like every other building! 

The Spirit of God dwells in you! The Spirit of holiness!  The Spirit of power!  The Spirit of Wisdom!  The Spirit of knowledge!  The Spirit of Understanding!  The Spirit of the Fear of God!  Alleluia!  Do you know all these?  Or you have been ignorant of these? 

Go forth and live as God's temple! For there is no better honor than this!
