Matthew 21:13,”And He said to them, “It is written, ‘MY HOUSE SHALL BE CALLED A HOUSE OF PRAYER,’ but you have made it a ‘den of thieves.”
We are God’s house because His Spirit lives in us.
It should be a house of prayer, not sin.
God cares about what we do to our bodies because it is His temple.
1 Corinthians 3:17,”If anyone defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.”
God’s temple must be kept holy.
If Jesus could care so much about what happened in the temple in which people gathered to pray,how much more will He care about what you do to your body, which is the temple where the Holy Spirit dwells?
Don’t ever think you are free to do anything you want in your body.
If you belong to Christ, your body belongs to Christ.
It must be kept holy and only used for His glory.
Jesus is so zealous for His temple.
He wants it to be kept holy because that is the dwelling place of the Holy Spirit.
“Then His disciples remembered that it was written, ‘Zeal for Your house has eaten Me up.”
