What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? —1 Corinthians 6:19

If the glory of God came down and the people fell prostrate in Solomon's day, how much glory ought there to be today? There was just one tabernacle and two tables of stone. Today your body is the temple of the living God. Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Ghost—and God with His own finger writes His Word in our hearts.

The ancient temple in all its glory represents each one of our bodies. If we are filled with the Holy Ghost as we ought to be, the body will be flooded with rivers of water, flowing out to others, and it will be on fire for God.

The glory of the Lord was seen over the ark; inside the tabernacle the lamp was always burning, being kept supplied with oil. It never went out. In the temple of the body, God puts His love in our hearts, and He wants us to keep the light always burning; never letting the fire of the Holy Spirit go out.

Continually burn within me, O Fire of God. Amen.
