Daily Devotional
June 19
 
If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.
1 Corinthians 3:17
 
What does it mean to be holy? When Moses realized he was in the presence of the Lord, he was told to take off his shoes for the ground he was on was holy ground (Exodus 3:5). As he overlooked the city of Jericho, Joshua had an encounter with the Lord and was also told to take off his shoes (Joshua 5:15). Therefore, the Church being holy, it would seem fitting that we take off our shoes as well.

How? After walking through mud on their way home from school, our kids take off their shoes before walking into the house so they don’t bring the mud in with them. So too, when we come together as a Body, we are to leave the mud of the world at the door. We’re to forsake grudges and pride, attitudes which are amiss, hearts that are quick to judge.

But there’s another reason to remove our shoes — for not only do I take my shoes off before I go into my house if they are dirty, but even if they are clean I take them off because I’m comfortable there.

So too, when we fellowship with the Body, we don’t have to keep our guard up or our best foot forward. We can relax in God’s comforting love for us and for each other.
