YOU ARE THE TEMPLE IN WHICH CHRIST MUST DWELL. HERE'S WHY.
MATTHEW 24 "As Jesus was leaving the Temple grounds, his disciples pointed out to Him the various Temple buildings. But He responded, " Do you see all these buildings? I tell you the truth, they will be completely demolished. NOT ONE STONE will be left on top of another." - Matthew 24:1-2.
Jesus was speaking about the future in this chapter and He was warning disciples about all these Temples that they were admiring, saying that there will be a time when they are no more.
Thus, you must be the Temple. Your heart must be a place in constant worship and prayer. Your thoughts must be filled with thoughts that honour the Lord and magnify Him.
Your thoughts should meditate on the things of Heaven and not of earth. Yes, you must be filled with His Word, like a Temple you must be filled with the Spirit of God. Allow His Holy Spirit to consume you.
You must respect your Temple for you are to be a carrier of His presence. You must be holy as He is holy.
Heed my warning, guard Your Temple's entrances and exists. What you see, listen to, meditate on. What you say, sing, think about and do. God must be glorified in Your life dear friend. You are not of this world. Know your value!
You can't just depend on your church attendance. You must make God your top priority! Spend time in worship. Spend time in His word as the Temple you are. We must be rooted in the Lord - now more than ever. Jesus warned, "... you will be arrested, persecuted, and killed. You will be hated all over the world because you are my followers. And many will turn away from me, betray and hate each other. And many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. Sin will be rampant everywhere, and the love of many will grow cold." - Matthew 24:9-12 "BUT THE ONE WHO ENDURES TO THE END WILL BE SAVED. And the Good News about the Kingdom WILL be preached, so that ALL THE NATIONS WILL HEAR IT; and THEN the end will come." - Matthew 24:13-14
