UNIFYING LESSON PRINCIPLE: People want to know that others will keep their word. How can they respond to a fulfilled promise? At the Temple dedication, Solomon thanked the Lord for keeping His promise.
CONCLUDING REFLECTION: It is important to live our lives according to the teachings and example of God and to thank God for helping us to maximize the potential that has been placed inside of all God’s people. God makes promises to us, and God specializes in keeping those promises. Just as Solomon took seriously the holy Temple in Israel, God desires us to take seriously the temples of our bodies and our lives. God is not contained within the walls of churches, but lives in every believing heart. First Corinthians 6:19-20 (NIV) tells us, “Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.” Look for practical ways to present your physical sanctuaries to God today!
PRAYER: LORD, thank you, for our temple. Thank you for trusting us to house your precious Holy Spirit. May you be pleased with our stewardship of your gifting. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
