  1. THe Temple Of God's Spirit

    1 Corinthians 6:19 ...... 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;

    We all know this verse but are we really understanding it's meaning ?

    We are bought with a price . Jesus sacrificed all for you and me . Once we put that in to our spirit and grasp the true meaning of what He did for us on the cross it becomes evident that we want to live lives pleasing to Him .

    You have heard the expression garbage in garbage out and it is so true that because our body is a temple we need to watch what we are putting in . Are we putting entertainment in that is not glorifying His name , music that has demonic connotations , looking at stuff on the internet that we think no one sees and the list goes on .

    Who are we fooling? Maybe no one sees but God does and maybe that is why the blessings do not flow in our lives .

    God has a high regard for our bodies . We should as well . Respect our bodies - not worship them . OUr body after all is the temple of God Think about it . Be careful how you feed it , and maintain it . Just like an engine of a car , we need to maintain our body and make sure it remains the temple that God desires.

    You wouldn't want any one trashing your home would you ? By the same token , God does not want any one trashing His.
  2. Wow, I never looked at it that way, iv always took the scripture to mean eating fatty foods 24/7/smoking etc.
    Hmm... Is it just Spiritual or both Spiritual and physical?
    Eitherway its gave me a better insight in to the scripture because like I said, never thought of it that way.. great!!!!!
    God bless.
  3. I believe it can be both spiritual and physical . Blessings.
  4. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11

    9Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders 10nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

    We are washed clean . We are made holy and right with God so why would we want to dishonour God by putting things into our spirit that we know are wrong?

    1 Corinthians 6:17

    But he who unites himself with the Lord is one with him in spirit

    God has allowed us to do all things , but all things are not good for me or you . We must not let these things be our slave.

    We know that our bodies are part of Christ , therefore to partake in anything unclean , we are dishonouring our temple.

    When we join with the Lord , we are one spirit with Him

    Honour God with your bodies ( temple)
  5. This is what so many don't realize and think about. We don't belong to ourself anymore, we belong to Him who bought us with His own precious life's blood, giving up His life for us! He bought us and paid for us. Now we are completely His to do with as He wills.

  6. Amen GodSpeaks . He is so precious to me . Every day is sweeter than the day before.
