What God Says about Your Body

January 20

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20

Every now and then, I’ll hear parents around our church talking to their unruly children. The child has misbehaved somehow within the confines of the church building, and the mom or dad will say, “How can you act like that? Don’t you know you’re in God’s house?”

I have to say that every time I hear the church building referred to as “God’s house,” a little bit of a shudder goes up my spine. That’s because there’s nothing really special or magical about the bricks and sticks that make up a church building.

So what is God’s house? Where does God dwell? Well, in the Old Testament, the temple in Jerusalem was known as God’s house because in it was the Holy of Holies where the glory of God would dwell. Yet, at the death of Christ, the temple veil was torn (Matthew 27:51), which meant that God’s special presence was no longer a geographic location.

The house of God, according to today’s Scripture, is now our very bodies if we’re in Christ. That’s because at the moment of belief, the Spirit of God comes to dwell in our hearts and takes up residence in our lives.

The church building is not the house of God. The people of the church are the house of God. So when you feel tempted to sin, remember who lives in you and gives you the power to resist!

WHEN YOU’RE TEMPTED TO SIN, REMEMBER THAT GOD LIVES IN YOU AND GIVES YOU THE POWER TO OVERCOME.

About Prestonwood Baptist Church

Prestonwood is a dynamic congregation, with people from all over the North Texas region who have come together for a common purpose—to study God’s Word, to worship Him, to do His work, and to reach the world with the Gospel message.

About Pastor Jack Graham

Pastor Jack Graham is the pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church, one of the nation's largest, most dynamic congregations.

When Dr. Graham came to Prestonwood in 1989, the 8,000-member congregation responded enthusiastically to his straightforward message and powerful preaching style. He challenged the Prestonwood family with a vision for a larger outreach, and in 1999, the church moved from its North Dallas location to a new 7,500-seat auditorium in west Plano.

Thriving with nearly 37,000 members, Prestonwood continues to grow with seven weekend worship services, four midweek services, about 300 Bible Fellowship classes for all ages, and multiple outreach and community ministries that reach thousands. In 2006, the church added a second location, the North Campus, in a burgeoning area 20 miles north of Plano. And in 2011, Prestonwood returned to its roots—beginning its third location, the Dallas Campus, about two from miles from its original location.

Dr. Graham has served two terms as president of the Southern Baptist Convention, the largest American Protestant denomination, with 16 million members and as president of the SBC Pastor’s Conference.

He is a noted author of numerous books, including You Can Make a DifferenceLessons from the HeartA Hope and a FutureLife According to JesusAre you Fit for Life? andPowering UpCourageous Parenting, co-authored by his wife, Deb, is based on their experiences as parents. Dr. Graham’s passionate, biblical teaching is also seen and heard across the country and throughout the world on PowerPoint Ministries. Through broadcasts, online sermons and e-mail messages, he addresses relevant, everyday issues that are prevalent in our culture and that strike a chord with audiences worldwide.

Dr. Graham was ordained to the Gospel ministry in 1970, and has a master of divinity degree with honors and a doctor of ministry degree in Church and Proclamation from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
