Destruction of Defilers.

Key Verse

“If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are” (1 Corinthians 3:17).

Text — 1 Corinthians 3:16-19


A wolf is a carnivorous animal which delights in the blood of its victim. The traditional Eskimo hunter coats his sharp knife with blood severally to conceal its blade. Finally, he covers it with fresh blood and places it in the ground with the blade pointing upwards. This wild animal comes to lick the blood until the sharp blade begins to cut its tongue and mouth. In the cold Arctic night, it tastes the fresh warm blood not knowing it is from its injured tongue. Further vigorous lick leads to its death. In the same vain, you destroy your body when you defile it.

In the Old Testament no unclean thing passed through the temple. In the New Testament era, believers are holy temples through whom the Spirit of God ministers to the world.   Many celebrities claim that their bodies belong to them, to misuse it for immorality, tattoos and nudity. Child of God, keep yourself pure because defilement dooms one eternally. After salvation your body should be presented to God as a living sacrifice in holiness.


Defilement dooms one eternally


Watch against defilements in all forms.

Prayer for today

Oh God, give me grace to remain pure in Jesus’ name.
