Episode 003 – being the Temple

To further these conversations, in episode 3 of the Simply to Thrive podcast we’re talking about why nutrition, wellness, physical health are important as a follower of Christ by looking at this in light of being the temple of Holy Spirit.


“Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? If any man destroys the temple of God, God will destroy him, for the temple of God is holy, and that is what you are.” 1 Corinthians 3:16-17 (NASB)

“Or 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, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (ESV)

“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.” Ephesians 2:21-22 (NIV)

Notable Quotes

» As the temple of the Holy Spirit, we don’t get to do whatever we please with our lives and our bodies.



Reflect on this concept: are you supporting life or destruction in the temple of the Holy Spirit by your lifestyle choices?

Three questions that you can ask yourself before making a purchase or eating:

  1. What is this food or product?
  2. What’s in it? What is it made of?
  3. Is it going to build up or tear down the temple?
