Our Bodies; God’s Temple

1 Corinthians 6: 19 – 20 (also reference 1 Corinthians 3: 16 – 17)

Our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in us, whom we have received from God? We are not our own; God bought us at a price. Therefore honor God with our bodies.

Do not defile the body with carnal and otherwise worldly thoughts but instead set your heart, mind and soul on the things of the Spirit.  Remember that only those things which come from within defile the body and not those which are external.

Our heavenly Father desires fellowship with us, so keep the body holy, set apart for honoring Him.  Reverence it as a place of worship to God. A meeting place where God and man commune as one.
