1 Corinthians 3:16 – Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

We are the temple of God. We cannot compare ourselves against others to see how well our temple is being kept up. We need to ask God, what do YOU think of my building?

God wants to own our house, to be able to open the door and walk thru the whole building. If God cannot dwell in the whole building, he doesn’t want a room. God is not satisfied with being a visitor in our house. We can’t say God, “Make your self at home, and go any where you want, except the back bedroom. It is just a mess; you don’t want to see it.” We can’t limit God’s ownership of our house. Can we truly say, God fill my building, dwell in every aspect of my life?

If we don’t allow God to take complete control of our house, it will be come uninhabitable. Our life will fall to pieces. We cannot take things into our own hands. If God is kept out of any space in our house, we become in danger of loosing our salvation. As God is allowed back into our building, the word and truth will be lifted up in its rightful place once again.

In speaking of the literal temple of God, 1 Kings 8 verses 10 and 11 explain the presence of the Lord in the temple.
And it came to pass, when the priests were come out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the LORD, So that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of the LORD.

With out God filling our building, the temple of God, our lives, it is just a building and nothing special. We have no power to live free from sin, those around us see no difference in us, we become apart of the world. We are no longer set apart to fulfill his plan.

Let us confirm and ask God to search us, in each aspect, every room, drawer, closet, each space to make sure that we have allowed him to have complete control over everything.
