“Change of Address” – 1 Corinthians 3:16

1 Corinthians 3:16 

“Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you?” 

The assembly of called out followers of Christ or “the church” is the house of God. The place in the Old Testament that saw God’s mercy, showed God’s power, spoke God’s word is now you.

What an amazing truth! The words that come to mind in describing me as the house of God are hopeful, powerful, capable of mercy, responsible, conquered by Him, and conqueror because of Him.

While using the HEAR method (see below) consider the following questions: 
  • What words come to your mind when you think about being the house of God?
  • As the dwelling place for God’s Spirit, how then should we live?  

Highlight – what words or phrases jump out at you? 

Explain – what does the passage mean? 
Apply – how does the passage intersect with your life today? 
Respond – how is God leading you to respond?
