JN 2: 13-22
Jesus is the true and eternal Temple; all others are modeled on Him, starting with each of us. The human body is also meant to be a Temple of God. How clean is my church? Am I committed to seeing myself as responsible for my body and how I use it? Stewardship of self is essential to Christian discipleship. No one can offer to others what they need not themselves possess.
Dear Jesus, help me to care for myself so that I can help others in Your Name. May I revere Your presence in my body as I do the Lord’s presence in Your church.
