Explain "Body Is The Temple" | The Todd Coconato Show 


To give:

The concept of our body being a temple of the Holy Spirit is deeply rooted in scripture and carries profound implications for believers in terms of self-care, spiritual discipline, and resisting the schemes of the devil. Let's explore this in detail with scriptural references and practical examples.

Biblical Foundation

  1. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (NIV)

    "Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies."

    In this passage, Paul emphasizes that believers' bodies are indwelt by the Holy Spirit. This means that our physical bodies are sacred spaces where God's Spirit resides. This should inspire reverence and careful stewardship of our bodies.

  2. Romans 12:1 (NIV)

    "Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship."

    Here, Paul calls believers to present their bodies as living sacrifices, indicating that our physical lives should be dedicated to God's service, reflecting holiness and devotion.
