SOLOMON'S TEMPLE

THE QUARRY


Read
1 Kings 6    

      In building the temple, only blocks dressed at the
quarry were used, and no hammer, chisel or any other iron tool was heard at the
temple site while it was being built.
1 Kings 6:7 NIV
* * *
      Solomon was given the task of building the temple
according to God’s exact specifications. Among those details were instructions
to dress the stones at the quarry, not at the temple site. The temple itself
could not be desecrated by the harsh pounding of hammer or chisel. Someone
walking past the site would see only the quiet actions of master builders–gifted
by God–setting the stones in place.
* * *
      We are told that our bodies are temples of the Holy
Spirit. Each day should find us at the “quarry” of Jesus our Rock, being molded
into shape by His Word. Only then will those walking by the temple site of our
lives see calm, peaceful activity as we use our talents for Him.
* * *
      Lord, as I sit before you just now–mold me into your
desired shape and use. May I exhibit the evidence of Your Holy Spirit in my life
today to my children, my husband and everyone who walks by.
* * *
      "Do you not know that your body is a temple of the
Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your
own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body
."     1
Corinthians 6:19‑20 NIV
