Clean House

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”

With the holiday season upon us, we care more about how our house looks than most days. We decorate for each holiday—Thanksgiving, Hanukah, Christmas, and Kwanza, to name a few.

We invite friends and family to dine with us, share fellowship, exchange gifts, and share each other’s company. We show them they are special by not leaving dishes in the sink, clothes behind the bathroom door, or shoes left in various places around the house.

If we invite someone special, we take a little more care in how we clean. 

But have we considered that our body is a temple in which the Holy Spirit resides? We neglect His house often and for long periods. 

The cleaning of our homes is not a “one-and-done” type of activity. It takes constant care and maintenance. If we noticed that Jesus Christ was coming to visit our house, we would clean extra special.

So often, we forget, God already resides in us.

This begs the question:

“So, how clean was your house today?”
