Throughout the world there are many elaborate temples that have been built. Some of these temples have survived in much of their original glory, while others have been worn down by time. We can find comfort in having a house of worship. We may even be awed by its beauty. However, the temples most precious to God are each and every one of us!
God has created each and every one of us as a temple for Him! God's Spirit dwells in us and among us. We do not have to build an extravagant building. We do not need gold, silver, or the finest fabrics and jewels. To be a temple for God, we just need to do some house cleaning. We first need to rid ourselves of sin by accepting the forgiveness that is offered through Jesus Christ. We can then open our hearts to welcome and serve God. We can become temples for Him!
Clean yourself with forgiveness from Jesus and then open your hearts as a temple for God!
Thank You for the forgiveness that You provide. Help my heart to be an acceptable temple for You. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
