THE TEMPLE OF HIS BODY- By David Havard


Scripture Reading: John 2:21

In the verses immediately preceding our text, Jesus had just purged the temple. As usual, the Jews wanted a sign. They wanted to know by whose authority He had done these things. Also in typical form, our Lord's answer went right over their heads. The Lord Jesus spoke of spiritual truths, but the Jews saw only the physical. Just as with the woman at the well who thought only of physical thirst, so these Jews were also blind to the great revealer of truth before them.

The temple of His body ... Think of it! Colossians 2:9 says, "that in Christ dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily." By this time, the glory of God had long since departed from the temple. How the Jews longed for the glory to return! Yet here before their own eyes was the very "express image of His person" (Hebrews 1:3) and the "image of the invisible God" (Colossians 1:15), and they failed to recognize it!

How often we also lose sight of spiritualtruths. We sometimes forget that ours is a spiritual, heavenly hope and calling. Yet how often we are Esaus, trading our spiritual blessings for a mess of earthly porridge! By God's grace may we not lose sight of our rich blessings which the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished and secured for us through the "temple of His body."


How God Saves Men
Believing Christ DIED, that’s HISTORY.
Believing Christ DIED for YOU SINS and Rose again that’s SALVATION.
Read Romans 1:16, Romans 10:9-10 and 1. Corinthians 15:1-4
