Paul's Place

My Place of reflection, joy and wonder

God's Temple

As I was praying one day, these words came to me...

God is building a temple; it will be made of pure gold. This temple will rise high and reflect the glory of His Son. In it, He will place His Holy Spirit, a resting place for Himself.

Some say: it will be too bright – make it of stone; it will be too high – make it smaller. Do you think it is right to put only your Spirit there – there may be other spirits that require a home?

Why did the people listen, so many compromises allowed to override the Master Architect and Builder, the temple now mottled with gold and stone – imperfectly reflecting His perfect plan.

We are not all that we were meant to be in Christ.
