Ephesians 2:21-22 In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit. (The Holy Bible, New International Version)

Most of us have been raised to be independent and self-dependent. God tells us our bodies are His temple. He goes on to say all of our (the believers) bodies join collectively and are built together through His Holy Spirit into the dwelling for God’s Holy Spirit. When part of the building is damaged the entire building is damaged. When part of the building is missing, the entire building is affected. Many think it doesn’t matter if they don’t actively participate in a church with other believers. By not coming or by not being active in a local church they are damaging the strength of God’s dwelling. Just as a physical body doesn’t function completely with a missing part, the Body of Christ cannot function complete when some of the parts of missing or not working correctly. Next time some of us think it won’t matter if we don’t attend a church service or it doesn’t matter if we sit back and hope someone else will do the needed service let us remember it is the Body of God’s Holy Spirit we are hurting. Let us do our part to make His Temple whole and powerful.
