OUR THEME FOR 2018
(Part 22)

GOD’S TEMPLE

November 9, 2017
Today’s reading: 1 Corinthians 3:9-17


Consider these amazing assertions of Paul about the people of God.

  • “For we are God’s co-workers” (v.9a)
  • “You are God’s field” (v.9b).
  • "You are “God’s building.” (v.9c).
  • “You are the temple of God” (v.16a).
  • “The Spirit of God dwells in you” (v.16b).

Further, Paul says that “the temple of God, which you are, is holy.” (v.17b). This is why we are called to holiness, to be holy as God is holy. It is merely consistent with being God’s temple. God cannot dwell in any place that is not holy.

Still further, “no one can lay a foundation other than the one that is there, namely, Jesus Christ.” (v.11). The foundation of the building, the very core and strength of the structure, is Jesus. We as a people are the temple of God, founded on Jesus, indwelt by the Spirit.

As God’s people, we are His co-workers. We do divine work, to accomplish divine purposes. We are critically important for God’s plan for the world. Thus God empowers us with His Spirit. God sends us forth to do His will, and protects us in the process, given the powerful enemies before us. He warns them, “If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person” (v.17a).

God is all out for His people. He has destined them for greatness.
