The Temple Of God

1 Corinthian 3:16

Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit dwelleth in you?

Continuing our discussion on the church; today our focus is the church as the temple of God both physically and spiritually as the congregation of believers assemble themselves to worship God. The temple has been long viewed as a place of worship and when true worship is exercised then the Holy Spirit is in the midst.

Why must God's temple remain holy? God's temple must remain holy even in the midst of a wicked society is that He is holy and cannot reside in a filthy place or along side idol gods (2 Corinthians 6:16). The local church is viewed as the city that is set upon a hill lighting the way for lost souls so they too may come to Christ. Most importantly, the temple/church must remain holy as it is the bride of Christ.

Being that the church is God's dwelling place it is imperative that it remain separated from this world and its systems. Who make up the church is the body of baptized believers who are holy and have been declared righteous through the blood of Jesus Christ. Being that believers have been bought with the blood of Jesus Christ, then believers' bodies are no longer theirs; therefore, believers being members of the body of Christ must live to glorify God as His Spirit lives within (vv. 19-20).
Church and believers you are the temple of God-be holy.
