TEMPLE TRASHERS! Who would want to trash a Temple? Terrorists maybe? Certainly not Christians! Or would they? Yet many Christians do it every day and think nothing of it or maybe don't realize it. I am serious. The Bible says, "Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies," (1 Corinthians 6:19-20 NIV).
Our bodies are God's holy place, a temple if you will, where His Holy Spirit dwells and the place in which we are to worship him. It is true that most Church buildings are expensive but yet our body is the most expensive meeting place with God there is. It cost Jesus His life. Jesus did not die for a church building. He died for us. So God says we are to honor Him with our bodies. Yet many Christians ignore the care of their body, soul, mind and Spirit through what they eat, drink, see, think and do. As a Christian the Holy Spirit is always with you. What you eat, drink, see, think and do does affect your relationship with and worship of God. We can actually become Temple trashers where even we could become ashamed to approach God to worship. As Christians that should horrify us; "Therefore honor God with your bodies." Maybe now is a good time to do a temple check. After all God is pretty near.
