“Do you not know that you are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in you?” (v16). Paul says that together, we are God’s temple built on the foundation of Jesus Christ. Everything we have has been given to us by God (so we have no reason to boast, v21), and we are precious to Him. As we keep our eyes on this truth, we have the chance to participate in “work” which glorifies Jesus, rather than ourselves or other leaders, and will last for eternity (v10-15).
“For all things are yours … and you are Christ’s, and Christ’s is God’s” (v21-23). With great humility, we live in complete confidence as sons and daughters of the Creator.
