Temples of the Spirit

Yesterday I heard the phrase “We are temples of the spirit”, a phrase I will have heard a thousand times before.  I had a two fold realisation.

Firstly, we are all therefore ‘God Carriers’ and as such ought to treat others and ourselves a such, with extreme respect. My words, actions, feelings and thoughts must reflect therefore this.  To judge another person is to judge God. To hurt another person is to hurt God. To speak ill of another is to speak ill of God.  BUT to love another person, to love people is to love God.

Also this means the spirit of God.  The very power of God is closer than you ever imagined.  The Spirit of God is part of your very being and when you think a prayer God knows it.  God is closer to you than mother, father, brother, sister, wife or husband.

We must all therefore be present to the fact we are temples of the spirit.  Acknowledge God at all times, be present and love and adore God in others we encounter. We should be kind to others and ourselves.
Pray at all times.

God is not there, 
God is not on a cloud, 
God is not in the temple in Jerusalem nor in Rome.  
The Spirit of God is in your heart.
The Power of God is in you.
1 Corinthians 6:19
