1 Corinthians 3:16 Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?17 If any man destroys the temple of God, God will destroy him, for the temple of God is holy, and that is what you are.
When you think of the word Temple, you may think of a big building that is very beautiful, where a group of worshippers gather to give honor & praise to the God they serve. The people of Israel had two temples, one built by King Solomon, the other by King Herod & they both were very beautiful places of worship, the disciples of Jesus were glazing at the temple in Jerusalem & how beautiful it’s stone were & how glorious it was to look at.
Luke 21:5 And while some were talking about the temple, that it was adorned with beautiful stones and votive gifts, He said,
Both Temples were destroyed & only a wall of one remains & foolish people worship & bang their heads against & those stone bricks, have no glory, cause the Lord never lived in stone or a building, His Spirit lives those who love & worship Him. Scripture tells me & you, that we should honor the Lord with this temple of His (our bodies) that we live & dwell in. Not only is the Holy Bible that tells how to have spiritual happiness & joy, it also tells me how to have a physically healthy life, so that I can praise & worship Him longer. ”. It is only while we are alive we can worship & praise God, cause the Holy Bible says the dead do not worship or give praise, cause tells us how to have spiritual health & happiness, but it also tells us how to have physical health. The Lord created me & you to worship Him, & we, a stone brick building can’t be shot, “I Love You Lord & wanna give you Praise foey are silent, have anyone of you ever heard, Amazing Grace come to a graveyard?
Psalm 115:17 The dead do not praise the Lord, Nor do any who go down into silence;
So we should honor God, with how we treat our bodies, most sins the Bible tells me & you stay away from are only there to keep me & you healthy & let us give praise & worship Him more. Others will see His glory in me & you, how beautiful & healthy is a people that lives reflects the Lord’s glory. Me & my lovely step-sister April were talking a few months ago, about it being easy for a Christian to give up something that is unhealthy for us & that helps us live longer, but even for me it’s hard to give up old habits, especially if they are tasty. But how can we give God glory if a we are coughing our lungs out, cause of bad habit & costly, how can we give God glory if we have memory loss, cause of habit that some Christian say is okay, because it helps with stress.My Bible say tell me it i have stress or anxiety, I don’t trust Him enough & worry is lack of trust in Him. How can person who says I love the Lord God, who gave me life, by deciding to take the gift of life God gave them, once again, that person is not trusting in God for happiness, if you need someone to talk to call me 1(704)300-3377, & pray for God to deliver you into His love. Dear brothers & sisters, there are plenty of bad habits or sins, i could say that will shorten our lives & give us less time to praise & worship God, but the scripture says it, if you destroy God’s temple (your body) He will destroy. If your bad habits are killing yourself slowly or rapidly, you are committ murder to God’s temple & the Lord is talking to me also.
God bless you, have a good weekend, if you need a way to worship this weekend, cause your church isn’t meeting you wanna worship or have Bible study let me know. God bless & I love you. Sam H.
