Our Bodies…The Temple of God

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.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

The above scripture shows us that our bodies are the Temple of the Holy Ghost.  Paul was primarily talking about fornication in the prior verses, but I believe it goes much deeper.  When we stop an think about our bodies being the Temple of the Holy Ghost, we should take heed of the things we do with our bodies, where we take our bodies, what we put into our bodies, what we wear and what we speak.  We are not our own where we have the RIGHT to choose what we do, BECAUSE we have been bought with a price.  Therefore, we are to glorify God in our Body and in our Spirit.  Why?  Because we are God’s!

May we always remember the price that God paid for us, His Son, Jesus Christ, and strive to conduct ourselves in a way that glorifies God.
