My cousin has written an amazing article on her blog ... about how we are a temple of God.  

Here is the beginning ... click through to read all of it!


The Divine Design

We are born kind of like this:

A Blob of Fabric and 3 Sticks

We, as we know ourselves during our life-time on earth, are only temporary beings. The bodies we dwell within are mere tents. A tent is not a permanent structure or home for a person fixed in a specific place. A tent is a sojourner’s home, a Bedouin’s home, a gypsy’s home, but never a permanent, fixed home. We know that we are aliens in this world. We are in the world but not of it. Our permanent, fixed home is in heavenly places, within the Kingdom of God, not in this physical kingdom.

There are definitely some raw materials there, but no structure or form. There is, however, a divine design. At first, it may be unapparent, but it is there.

So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands.
