    Our bodies is the living temple of God, that's where He wants to dwell. Our. Great need is in Him. If we neglect to take care of ourselves then He will destroy us according to his word. When we separate ourselves from God then we are committing suicide. God desire and intent is to dwell in us through His spirit. That is the spirit of God of Jesus. We are the living temple of the living God.
