Rob Norman: 1 Corinthians| Temple of The Holy Spirit
The Hebrew understanding of The Temple, is that this was the place where God’s glory and presence dwelt. In fact, the innermost part of the Temple, was called the ‘Holy of Holies’, this is the place where the Ark of The Covenant, the most Holy object in the Temple, belonged. The ark was synonymous with God’s power and His presence. It went ahead of the Hebrews it into battle and it was revered because it was synonymous with God himself.
This is what our lives should like as well. The same presence and power of God that was with the Ark of the Covenant should accompany all believers.
