"Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?" (1 Corinthians 3:16)A friend of mine brought this passage to my attention, I felt there was such importance to this that it couldn't go unnoticed. So I thought okay.. God is within me... but as simple as it sounds I felt I was missing something. Then a few days later, I kept bugging my friend about missing something. I recalled the how the bible says God made man in his image, that connected with the verse above lead me to believe that Our spirits are what God made in his image and our bodies are truly just a vessel. God is within our spirit its God's gift to us and thus he's always part of us.
"I said, 'You are "gods"; you are all sons of the Most High.' (Psalm 82:6)The significance of this is truly great! Knowing this leads us to understanding why sin is wrong. It disconnects us from God and truly ourselves. Sin is when we put more worth of things of the world than things of God. It's sad that most people do truly live of the world, they put the most value in objects, and things of flesh. I'd like to share part of a conversation I had after I had this realization.
Friend: Do you think maybe you feel any different about that?
ME:actually I feel more confident about who I am about God, and well really at the moment I feel so blessed but not just for me but for people in general.
Friend: Do you know where heaven is now?
ME: the kingdom of heaven is within.
Friend: Do you know where your home is now?
ME: Where ever I happen to be, cause its within me.
ME: Cause God is within me, and so the kingdom of heaven
Friend: Yes, because that is where your father is, and where the father is, is where your home is, and your life.
