Let’s talk about God’s Temple. What does that mean? How do you keep it clean? Which spiritual disciplines help keep you focused?
1st Cor inthians 3: 16 – 17, read in the ESV Bible says, “16 Do you not know that you[a] are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in you? 17 If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him. For God's temple is holy, and you are that temple.”
And in the NKJV it reads, “16 Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? 17 If anyone [a]defiles the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy, which temple you are.”
Saints! You are a temple of God and the Spirit of God dwells in you. Let’s talk about “which temple are you”, the holy temple or the defiled temple.
You will need your Bible, journal, something to write with and a comfy place to sit for thinking and write. This is podcast number 55. Now on to the Intro..
Introduction of Podcast
Welcome to Hanging Out With Jesus Podcast for believers who know what God’s called you to do but you need some help in getting it done or even started. With work, children, a spouse, pets, church duties, returning back to school, laundry, and of course cooking, how can you manage your time and spend time hanging out with Jesus.
Saints, Breathe (breathe aloud)
We have three ways to support you and you can receive this support in your email just by going to www.hangingoutwithjesuspodcast.com.
The three ways we provide support to help you manage your time and be able to spend quality time with Christ Jesus are:
First, Bible study, webinars through The Me Project Academy to help you manage your time and be able to spend quality time with God.
Second, this podcast is released the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month with me and sometimes a guest share how we developed spiritual disciplines to manage our time and spend time with God.
And third, The Me Project Academy newsletter that contain tips for managing your time, words of encouragement, and much more but it is also the way to get Prayer-A-Week and the podcast sent directly to your email. To get started, click on the The Me Project Academy newsletter link in the comments or go to www.hangingoutwithjesuspodcast.com. And please write a review, on your podcast platform if this has blessed you.
Saints, my hope is that these tools cause you to stop and hangout with Jesus.
So come walk with me as we intentionally and daily hang out with Jesus.
4:21 - Let’s pray…
5:40 - Lyvita: Saints, I am so happy to have Dawn Swayne on the podcast today. She spoke at the women’s fellowship in my church and was so inspiring until I just had to get her on an episode. Hello Dawn.
6:35 - Dawn Shares
6:55 - Lyvita: Dawn you made a statement about how you wanted to help women get from just reading their Bible to putting it down and then going to do something. It’s that period right in between there that you wanted to focus on. Did I get it right?
7:18 - Dawn Shares
9:00 - Lyvita: Ok Dawn, please share with the Saints of Hanging Out With Jesus, a little about yourself and what you do.
9:25 - Dawn Shares
13:10 - Lyvita: So that leads into why I asked you to join the saints and I on this episode. I wanted to talk about God’s Temple. Are you taking care of it? What does that look like? How can you defile it?
13:29 - But first, let’s read 1st Corinthians 3: 16 – 17, again. It reads, “16 Do you not know that you[a] are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in you? 17 If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him. For God's temple is holy, and you are that temple.”
14:01 - Before we can actually talk about this we have to look at who Paul is talking about. We began talking about 1st Corinthians 3 beginning on episode 53. This is episode 55, so if you haven’t listened to them, then I would behoove you to do so.
15:41 - Lyvita: So who is God’s Temple?
15:43 - Dawn Shares

33:18 – Dawn any last words?
36:08 – So what’s on your plate for 2022?
