Written by Verse of the Day

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Do you not know that your body is a temple 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 body.

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
Yesterday, we were reminded of Solomon’s great dedication speech of the Temple in the Old Testament. Incredibly, Paul asserts that God has taken up his dwelling inside of us through his Spirit, just as majestically as he took up his dwelling in the Jerusalem Temple. Our acceptability to God as his holy dwelling came at a great price to him — the death of his Son! How can we refuse to honor his holy presence in us? How can we not live a holy life in response to his grace?
