Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you (1 Corinthians 3:16).
As Christians, it’s so important that we’re conscious of who we are and what we have. You know, sometimes, some people come to church and they say, “Lord, we’ve come into your presence today.” And when they leave, they feel they’ve left the presence of God. Some even pray for the presence of God to come down.
But the truth is, as a child of God, you don’t “come” into God’s presence. You come in, and with, His presence! You carry that presence! When you go to church, you go with His presence in you.
You’re the temple of the living God, who dwells in you by the Holy Spirit. When you were born again, Christ took up His abode in the quarters of your heart. He’s in you now, and you’re in Him. He didn’t come into you to leave again after some time; no! He’s with you, and in you, forever! Sadly, a lot of folks don’t know this. But thanks be unto God! We know what we carry. This isn’t an imagination! It’s not a fable. This is reality. The Spirit of God dwells in you, and He’s the conveyor of the presence and blessings of God, and all that’s been given to us in Christ Jesus.
