Your Body Is a Temple

1 Corinthians 6:19–20


In this lab, Pastor John reminds us that not only are the people of God the dwelling place of God, but that he cares how clean his house is.

Principle for Bible Reading

Find Reality

Often, God’s deepest treasures are for those who refuse to stop at an intellectual level, but keep digging and praying until they strike the heart of the reality of the text. Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal it to you and keep digging until you not only know what the text says, but what the text means — what realities it points to.

Study Questions

  1. What is a temple? What do you think it meant to the Jewish people?
  2. What does it mean that we are the temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19–20)? Does he spatially live in us?
  3. Are you living in any sins that you know grieve the Holy Spirit?
