1 Corinthians 3-4
A couple issues Paul faced with the Corinthians was their immaturity and arrogance. They still lived like they had not encountered Christ. And, yet, they acted like they were wiser and superior than others. Paul corrects both of these issues by talking about the role of God’s servants and the example set by the apostles. It’s not about being superior or wise, but a faithful manager of what God has entrusted us with.
One of the standout points Paul makes is that we, as believers, are God’s temple and God’s Spirit lives in us. This is a truth we must internalize and take seriously. It should be a truth that informs every decision we make, including how we treat our body. God is omnipresent, even more, he is in us. We should live in a way that walks worthy of being God’s temple.
Do you live your life like you’re God’s temple?
