Don’t you know, you are the church?

So, I’m going to rant a bit as Paul did in his letter to the Corinthians “Don’t you know!…” yes he said Don’t you know, “Don’t you know know your bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God?” The Spirit is in you! Yes, there, in y.o.u., the whole time, without question, received from God, need I go on?

I can almost hear Paul saying, “What about – your bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit, do you not understand?” It may come as a shock for you but it does begin to help you understand how you will never be late for church again, ever! You will be eternally on time!

This Holy Spirit “inside us” thing is highlighted by Jesus in Luke 17 when he is asked by some religious folks, so where is this “Kingdom of God” you keep talking about? And he says, “you can look far and wide, you can go searching, out there… (but don’t be fooled – okay, he didn’t really say this but it’s fun to think he might have), the Kingdom of God is… within you.” In some translations, it says, in your midst. In Aramaic, it basically means right here, in you, and around you, right now!

So, the next time anyone tries to point you to a place of worship and they’re not pointing at you, or themselves, you might want to help them with their directions.

Love is here, why wait, stop seeking and be here now.

Namaste!
