My Bible reading this morning listed a series of genealogies and then the assignments of various people in the temple.

I kept thinking, “How does this apply to me?”

And then it hit me.

The temple is now me!

The temple is now you!

We carry the Holy Spirit inside of us instead of having to go to a certain place and have a high priest enter the Holy of Holies for us.

So, when I read about all these people who had certain roles in and around the temple, I keep thinking of how we all have responsibilities in and around each other.

What I’m taking from my reading today is this:

I am not only the temple of the Lord, I am a gatekeeper for others, a guard, a trusted official for others.

So are you.

God has entrusted us all with His Spirit as well as the ability to help others protect His Spirit.

Do something today to help another Christian in their life as a temple of God.

If God can distract us from His Work, we not only become a fragile temple, we also become a poor gatekeeper and unreliable guard.

Praying for you all today.

Thanks for your prayers for me.

I love you,
