Body Belongs to God

00:00

Description

Our body is the inner sanctuary where God dwells. We cannot get closer to Him than that.

You cannot get closer to God than you are right now! Often believers feel distant from God. Their relationship with God the Father is cold and the Father seems remote. Yet that is not what we find in Scripture.

The identification with Christ is so complete that we participate in the life of God. In our identity with Christ, we are given the privilege of living life within the Trinity. We have the Holy Spirit within our lives.

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body (1Cor 6:19-20).

The word for temple is Naos. That is the inner sanctuary where God dwells. Paul wrote that we are the inner sanctuary of God because the Holy Spirit is inside of us. We cannot get closer to God than that. So it is not an issue of God being distant, it is an issue of us distancing ourselves from God. You are as close to God as you will ever be! What we must do is recognize our closeness so we can live that closeness out.
