I Corinthians 6:19 NKJV “Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?”
Do we really know that God lives in us? Have we really understood what it means for God to live in us? Has it actually dawned on us that the Almighty God, the Creator of the heavens and the earth, the King of glory, the Holy God, the Monarch of the universe, dwells in us now?
I’ll like to compare us with the Ark of God in the Old Testament. Are you aware that a man died just by touching the ark of God? Are you aware that an entire family prospered in every imaginable way just because the ark of God was kept in their house? Are you aware that the children of Israel won their battles by taking the ark to battle? Are you aware that physically made gods fell before the ark? And are you aware that when the ark was captured, God struck the people of the land and surrounding territories, with tumours?
Ha! Brothers and sisters, the ark, as important as it was, is nothing compared to your body today! Because the glory available to us today is greater than what they had in the Old Testament! How can you be scared of kidnappers? You kidnap me, you get burnt! I don’t need to do anything, God lives in me! You employ me, or live with me, or even befriend me, and you get blessed, because God lives in me! You touch me wrongly or try to harm me, and you get into serious trouble, because God lives in me! I am a blessing wherever I am, and healing flows to everyone and everything around me, because God lives in me!!! And I am always fully conscious of His presence in me! So henceforth, I won’t abuse my body, because God who lives in me is holy! Hallelujah!
