Temples

“Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?”

(1 Corinthians 3:16)

A paraphrase by justB of 2 Corinthians, Chapter 6:

As we work together with Christ as recipients of strength and his grace, may our efforts not be in vain. He has given these gifts for such a time as this. Now is the day of salvation. There are no excuses for not being about the Father’s business in every way, amidst every conflict or affliction, or times of distress. No matter what, we must, by the word of truth, in kindness and patience, be clothed with the full armor of God. In sorrow, rejoicing; in having nothing, yet as if we possessed all things. We must not be held back by anything in order that we may help others. Let us walk and work together as temples of the living God.

As God has said, “I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people … and [I] will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters.”
