The Temple

1475996400-2Our Bible verses tell us about the Temple built by King Solomon. When the Temple was finished, the priests put the box in the Most Holy Place of the Temple. Then they sang songs of praise to God. But what happened next must have been really magnificent. “Then the Lord’s Temple was filled with a cloud. The priests could not continue to serve because of the cloud, because the Glory of the Lord filled the Temple” (verse 13b-14).
At that time, God’s presence was in the Temple. But the New Testament teaches that Christians are spiritual temples. 1 Corinthians 6:19a says, “You should know that your body is a temple for the Holy Spirit that you received from God and that lives in you.”
Because God’s Spirit lives in us, we need to remember to keep our bodies pure. When we are tempted to sin, we should think about God and only do things that please Him. “God paid a very high price to make you his. So honor God with your body” (1 Corinthians 6:20).
