"My Body is God’s Temple!"
Memory Verse: “You should know that your body is a temple for the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is in you. You have received the Holy Spirit from God. You do not own yourselves.” 1 Cor. 6:19
- What is a temple?
- Do you know the name of the tent or worship the Israelites used?
- What kinds of things did the Israelites do to worship God in the Tabernacle?
- Eventually, the Israelites settled in the Promise Land of Canaan. King David’s son Solomon built a temple and courtyards for people to worship in.
- Is any temple that a man can build actually great enough to house God?
- If God doesn’t live in “temples made with hands,” where does He live?
- He created each of us to be His temple – a place where He will live and be worshiped by us. When you become a Christian, the Holy Spirit, God moves inside of you. Out all of the places He could live, He has chosen YOU to be His temple.
- How should you act and take care of yourself knowing that you are God’s Temple?
