"...It is written, 'My house shall be called a house of prayer, but you have made it a den of thieves.' " - Matthew 21 V13

"Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?" - 1 Corinthians 6 V19

How well do you keep the house of God? Perhaps, we all are guilty of not taking care of the temple of God as we ought to be. Jesus drove out all who bought and sold in the temple and He made it clear that His house is a house of prayer. Similarly, we have been created for the glory of God and our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, the very dwelling place of God. When we have evil desires and unclean thoughts, we spoil the place for God in us and make it unclean. Let us invite Jesus Christ into our hearts and pray to God to keep us away from evil desires and from sin so we can always maintain a good dwelling place for the Holy Spirit.

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
