Your Body Is a Temple

New Era Magazine, 2019/08 Aug

The temple of the Holy Ghost

A holy temple is considered the house of the Lord. Your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost. By keeping the commandments and living righteously, you invite the Holy Ghost to be your “constant companion” (Doctrine and Covenants 121:45–46).

Ye are not your own

Your mortal body is a gift from God, created in His image (see Genesis 1:26–27; Moses 6:9).

Bought with a price

Jesus Christ paid the price for your redemption, both physically and spiritually, through His atoning sacrifice.

I tremble to know that for me He was crucified,

That for me, a sinner, He suffered, He bled and died.

(Hymns, 193)

Glorify God

To glorify God means to honor and praise Him. You can glorify Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ in your thoughts, words, and actions.
