“Because we are the temple of the living God” - 2 Cor 6:16
This Word of God reminds us of the sanctity of our bodies, hearts and souls because we were formed or created by God in His own image and likeness. Many of us do not realize that our bodies are God's temples. Evil deeds, drunkenness and various kinds of heresy and idolatry take us far away from God. Often we don't even realize that our sins are piling up and we need to go for a confession. But precisely at times like that, usually we are convinced by the devil that we haven't sinned much and so it's okay not to confess. On the other hand, the devil laughs because it makes him freer to control us if we do follow and obey him.
Facing hardships and difficulties in today’s world, there are temptations in the midst of so much suffering due to the global pandemic. The choice is in our hands, we are the one who will determine the welfare of our souls after our death. If we realize that we are the temple of the living God, surely we will never make a wrong choice for the welfare of our souls in the eternity. May God bless our intentions.
