Letters from a Pastor to His People- February 23, 2020
Paul's letter is pure gold. First, he gives the monumental line: "Do you not know that you are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?" (1 Corinthians 3:16).
This is key for the spiritual life. This reality—that we are temples—is the foundation for all prayer.
I'm big into prayer, as you know. To me, it's the center of a priest's life. If a priest isn't praying, his life is meaningless. It's a train wreck. Why? Because prayer is relationship with God. Think of being married and never communicating with your spouse. Your life would be a contradiction. Same with a priest.
