2 Chronicles 4:22, “ And the snuffers, and the basons, and the spoons, and the censers, of pure gold: and the entry of the house, the inner doors thereof for the most holy place, and the doors of the house of the temple, were of gold.”
This chapter of the Bible talks about the details surrounding Solomon building the temple. It states that the inner entry of the temple and the inner doors should be the most holy place.
This was the temple of the Lord in the Old Testament. The New Testament talks about the temple in 1 Corinthians 6:19 Which says, “ What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?” Just as the inner parts of Solomon’s temple were supposed to be the most holy, our inner part, our heart, ought to be the most holy.
Some people have an unholy heart, but they try to fake it on the outside. This is hypocrisy. On the flipside, some people claim that it is what is on the inside that matters because God sees the heart. However, I firmly believe that what is on the outside as a reflection of what is on the inside.
Just as the Old Testament Temple was to be a holy place, we ought to strive to keep our bodies and life holy. 1 Peter 1:16, “ Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.” Let us strive today to keep our bodies, the temple off the Holy Ghost, a holy place.
