The Temple of the Living God

Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. (2 Corinthians 7:1)

In 2 Corinthians 6:16, We are told that we are the temple of the living God. God will dwell in us, and walk among us. He will be our God, and we shall be His people.

We are the dwelling place of God. We are His living temple. God lives and moves among us.

This is serious business. We are to get ourselves ready.

We are to cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit. Nothing stands between us and God. Nothing hinders our relationship with God. Christ has reconciled us with His Father.

Nothing separates us from the love of God. We are to honor God by living a holy and righteous life. We are to live according to the Word of God, and be a light of God to the world and our family and friends.

We are to obey God and fear Him only. We are to keep God's commandments, for this is the whole duty of man.

We are to please God and do His biddings.

We are to worship God and God alone. Nothing else matters.
