Where Heaven and Earth Meet

I have been thinking about what it means to be a temple. Paul admonishes the people of the church of Corinth to flee immorality saying "do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have heard from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price; therefore glorify God in your body."(1Cor 6:19-20)
What is a temple? It is a holy place, a place where we find God. And where we find people. It is where heaven and earth meet. Inside me, a temple, heaven and earth intermingle. Holy Spirit and earthy me come together and His Glory is manifested. And God is pleased because, after all, it was His plan from the beginning that we would know oneness with Him.
So we must daily render our temples to Him that He might fill us up and then pour out of us so that as Isaiah 6:3 says, "the whole earth will be filled with His glory." And it all starts in you, where heaven and earth meet.
