A Temple for the Holy Spirit

Three thousand years ago, Solomon received a message from God through his father David, to build a temple.  At the beginning of the project, he prays.  What a model for prayer in these verses! 

It was about to be the first time that God’s people would have a permanent place for worship—not the portable tent-like temple they had in the desert. Back then, brick and cement were what was needed for people to get a sense of God living with them.  Now, however, because of Jesus’s death and resurrection, he is the temple.  If you live in Jesus, your warm heart becomes a temple for the Holy Spirit.

Tuesdays are dedicated to the the History and Writings of the Hebrew Scriptures.

2 Chronicles 1:7-13

These Firestarters are from a new edition of The Bible Through the Seasons being developed for families with children. For the Firestarters in the original edition, I recommend the ebook.  You will have the entire program of well over a thousand of these introductions with you on your phone or table!
