“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own.” (1 Corinthians 6:19)
It is said that our bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit. We are called to care for our bodies and honor God’s temple.
God the Father created our bodies, God the Son redeemed them, and God the Holy Spirit indwells them. We belong to Christ, so we have the Spirit of Christ residing in us. Christ’s blood purchased us from the slavery of sin and set us free forever. And as Christian bodies are God’s temple, we are to use them to glorify God.

Our bodies are the sacred place where the Spirit lives, is worshiped, and is honored. How we behave, think, and speak, and what we let into the temple through our eyes and ears, also becomes critically important, for every thought, word, and deed is in God’s view.
We should keep our bodies pure by following the Word of God and having clean thoughts.
