Acts 17: 22-24
22 Paul then stood up in the meeting of the Areopagus and said: “People of Athens! I see that in every way you are very religious. 23 For as I walked around and looked carefully at your objects of worship, I even found an altar with this inscription: to an unknown god. So you are ignorant of the very thing you worship—and this is what I am going to proclaim to you.24 “The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands.
God does not live in temples said Paul. He is in the hearts of people and so it is that those who follow Christ are sometime referred to as temples of the Holy Spirit. We are born again of the Holy Spirit through the waters of baptism and God dwells in us. What an awesome thought.
Lord, abide with me as in the words of the hymn. Help me to know that you are in me and with me each moment of every day.
