If You Are in Christ, Offer Your Body as a Living Sacrifice
We need to be often reminded, that our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit. If a person is in Christ Jesus, and Christ is in you, we are told that we are the temple of God. As such, we are to offer our bodies as a living sacrifice, that is holy and acceptable to God not based on what we do or what we don’t do, but because God has made us that way. He has made our bodies holy and blameless in His sight.
Romans 12:1 1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.

Our Bodies Are The Temple of God if The Holy Spirit Lives In You
When a person receives Jesus, God in the flesh, who went to a cross, died for the sins of the whole world (which includes their sins too), and was raised from the dead, they themselves become born again of the Holy Spirit of God and are raised from death to Eternal life at the very moment they place faith in Him. The Holy Spirit comes to live in them, never to forsake them no matter what we do in life. Once we realize that, and we begin to understand that we are the temple of God and the Holy Spirit dwells within us. He lives in us constantly. How much sense does it make to defile the temple of God? It doesn’t make sense to be doing some of the dumb things we are doing in life.
Listen in as Bob shares truth from the word of God.
1 Corinthians 3:16 16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
