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

The Church is not the house of God no more than your body. People come to Church to honor God then dishonor him with their bodies.

A house is a dwelling place. We are meant to treat our bodies with respect and do nothing in it that dishonors God.

God has made his home in us, within our hearts. This is why Christ cares so much about matters of the heart.

Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life. – Proverbs 4:23

All the fruits of our actions started out from the seeds sown into the heart. Christ is the seed, that was sown in the world. The earthly/external rejected Christ, but if we receive him in the heart/internal then we gain victory over the flesh and will receive a crown of life.

Peter prophetically denied Christ 3 times, reflecting how the flesh, will reject God. Jesus knew because he has rejected the flesh and if God has rejected it, then it will also reject him. The flesh has no part with God, no inheritance, no relationship with God.

Like Paul we are called to “die daily” rejecting the flesh every day we dwell in it.

We can only know God through the spirit of God and that spirit which dwells in us.
