8-6-14 Temple of the Spirit

temple body

When you take Jesus as your sovereign Lord,

A change begins to happen throughout you:

The Holy Spirit promptly climbs aboard

And now transforms you into something new.

As He regenerates and sanctifies,

The Spirit needs a holy place to dwell;

Your body is His temple til it dies,

So live a wholesome life and treat it well.

Do not defile this temple of the flesh

With baseless sin and moral turpitude;

You gave your life to Jesus – keep it fresh!

As you conform to Christ, you’ll be renewed.

The temple is a place of holiness

Through which His work is done with love expressed.


Don’t you know that your body is a sanctuary

of the Holy Spirit who is in you,

whom you have from God?

You are not your own…

1 Corinthians 6:19 HCS
