Rebuild Your Temple

“Is it a time for you yourselves to be living in your paneled houses, while this house remains a ruin?” Now this is what the LORD Almighty says: “Give careful thought to your ways. You have planted much, but harvested little. You eat, but never have enough. You drink, but never have your fill. You put on clothes, but are not warm. You earn wages, only to put them in a purse with holes in it.” This is what the LORD Almighty says: “Give careful thought to your ways. Go up into the mountains and bring down timber and build my house, so that I may take pleasure in it and be honored,” says the LORD. (Haggai 1:4-8 4)

I loved planning and building a tree house. You had to have enough resources to span between branches, to provide a solid foundation on which to stand, and to provide security to keep me and my buddies from falling out.

The prophet Haggai is a prophet of God speaking to the people of Israel. He tells the people to “give careful thought to your ways” and then go get some wood to build “my house.” Two things come to mind. There needs to be some thinking, planning and building. But secondly, God’s reprimand to the people of Israel is important to read.

If you will remember, the temple in the Old Testament was where God lived and met man on earth. Today, the temple of God is our body. When we accept Christ, the Holy Spirit comes to live in us.

Do you see the connection? We need to be thinking about our lives. We need to realize that some of us have spent a lot of time in the pursuit of everything but the building of the Temple of God. We need to be planning on how to “rebuild our temples.” One way to do this is to be intentional about studying God’s Word.

Question: Do you need to be rebuilding your temple?

Challenge: Be intentional about spiritual disciplines this year.

Prayer: Father, thank You that we have the resources to spiritually build or rebuild our houses, your Temple. Come, live in us. Amen.
