Why is it important to dedicate the temple to God?
God requires a pure temple, a holy temple, a temple used for the purposes of God.
It is to be built with purpose and resolve.
It was built for sacrifice and to house the Ark of the covenant.
When you build your temple, it needs to be dedicated to God.
Each day you need to lift it up and consecrate it for the uses it was created for.
For submission to God - for prayer - for worship & for sacrifice of praise.
Your temple also houses the ark of the covenant in the form of the new covenant, the covenant between God and man by the blood of Jesus Christ.
You dedicate this temple, (your body), for use to God and for God’s people.
