Ever since the Temple was built, the importance was that God’s glory dwelt there. When Solomon first built the Temple, the glory of God was a dark cloud. And when Jesus is presented in the Temple, once more the glory of God fills it. But the best part — we are now temples of the Holy Spirit. The passion and suffering of Jesus means that we are Temples of the Holy Spirit. In this way, we receive the powerful light of Christ, and we use that light to invite others into a relationship with Jesus.
