Solomon’s temple was a magnificent building. At the dedication service, the shekinah glory of God visibly occupied the temple – but specifically the holy of holies.
1 Corinthians 3:16 Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
Today, there is no need to travel to Jerusalem and go to a specific building to be in the presence of God. We have the incredible blessing of being the dwelling place of God. Every believer on the planet is an active temple of God – observed by unbelievers. How does the reality of God occupying our lives and our bodies appear to those who see us? We have the incredible privilege and blessing to host – to be the dwelling place – God Almighty!
