A HOLY TEMPLE!
By ROBERT E. HANNA
Scripture Reading: Ephesians 2:21, 22
Individually and collectively, the members of the Body of Christ constitute the temple of the Holy Spirit of God. We need not await a divine visitation or a miraculous sign; the indwelling Spirit is ever present. “Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? … He that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s” (l Cor. 6:15, 17, 19,20).
Not only so, but we are the permanent abiding place of the Holy Spirit. Pity the saint of God who is ignorant of the priceless gift of life eternal. There is no power in heaven or earth capable of snatching away our certified citizen-ship in glory. ” ….. After that ye believed, ye were sealed [in Christ] with that Holy Spirit of promise, which is the earnest (assurance or pledge) of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of His glory” (Eph. I:13,l4).
The work of Christ to secure our heavenly position, is finished. “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who HATH blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: according as He HATH chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world … having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to Himself…wherein He HATH made us accepted in the beloved” (Eph. 1:3-6).
