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.
And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself.
MEMORY VERSE: Galatians 5:16; This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

Please let us turn our Bibles to 1 Corinthians 6: 19-20,” Do you not know that your body is a temple 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 body.” If the Holy Spirit lives in us, what kind of home would He want to have? So, how should we take care of the home that the Holy Spirit lives in? Let’s brainstorm today!
PROGRESSION OF EVENT: Luke 10:27
– Protect your mind from sin. ( Be careful what you watch on TV or the Internet.)
– Listen to music with good lyrics. Read books that would honor Him.
– Surround yourselves with good friends; people who will encourage you to do the right thing.
• Study God’s Word.
– Eat a balanced diet of foods.
– Get your sleep.
• And a shower at least once a day.
• Ask for forgiveness of your sins.
– Hide God’s word in your heart.
– Be completely humble and gentle.
– Be thankful.
– Think first about God, then others.
– Love is patient, love is kind

– Forgive people when they have wronged you.
CLIMAX: In Him, the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. (Ephesians 2:21).
CONCLUSION: And in Him, you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by His Spirit (Ephesian 2:22).
CHALLENGE: If you trust in Jesus as Lord and Saviour, the Holy Spirit will live in you and will be with you. If we have asked Jesus to forgive us of our sins, and we turn from those sins to follow God, then we have the Holy Spirit living with us!
How does that make you feel? If the Holy Spirit lives in what kind of home would He want to have? Would He want a home full of trash or sin? No! Ephesians 4:30, actually says that we can grieve the Holy Spirit. That means that we can make Him sad with our poor choices in life.
INVITATION: To be able to walk and live in the Holy Spirit, you need Jesus to be your personal Lord and Saviour (Ephesians 2:8).
