Meaning and Implication

bread-and-cup-2The word of God tells us we are the temple of the Holy Spirit. We bear God on our inside, we carry him about. We are more than we look to the human eye.
When we make the decision of becoming Born again, accepting the divine life, God gives us not just his gifts but we come to inherit Him. Gen. 15:1kjv. God says- I am your shield and your reward. God gives us himself with all he is and has. But God will not entrust himself to just anyone.

The Requirements:
1. Separation: Lk 14:26, Gen. 12:1-3.
Even from the beginning, all those that God has dared to entrust himself to had to separated themselves:
-Abraham from his kindred and family. Gen 12:1-3.
-Joseph from Sin. Gen 39:9.
-Moses from the pleasures of Egypt. Ex.3:1-10, Heb.11:24.
-Daniel and his Companions from whatever defiles. Dan. 1:8.
-Jesus from self. Jn. 5:30.
-The disciples, etc. Matt.4:18-22.

Indeed, any man to bear God in his inside, be a temple of the Holy Ghost must first be separated.

2. Consecration:
Consecration or dedication is beyond belonging to, it means belonging WHOLLY and ONLY to. God will not entrust himself to any man that is not dead to himself and own interests. St Paul describes this as our only reasonable service. Rom. 12:1. This is the life we now bear after we separated ourselves and get consecrated to God. He fills us with his Goodness as He dwells in the temple of our bodies.

Gods first purpose is that all members of the body of Christ will come to the fullness of the stature of Jesus. Then we must take this gift to the market place, to our offices, schools, businesses, hospitals, indeed every where we go. Eph. 4: 12-16
