God's Temple

Did you know that you are the temple of God?

Scripture spends much time describing the tabernacle of Moses in the Old Testament.  God revealed Himself to Moses and was present in the tabernacle.  In great detail, God later instructed the building of a temple.  The tabernacle and temple included several key components, but what was most important was not the structure, but that God was present.  

Paul tells us in Ephesians 2:21 – “in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into la holy temple in the Lord.” We are the “whom!”  God has chosen to move His presence from structures to people… People are the temple of God. 1 Corinthians 3:16 also tells us - “Don't you know that you yourselves are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in your midst?”
