Temple of the Holy Spirit

Tofu with Prawns and Sugar Snap Peas

Steamed Fish with beans
There are days when you want to eat healthy and meatless, these two dishes are just right for you.  Tofu with mushrooms and vegetables, and steamed fish with beans.

Our body is the temple of Christ, we must keep it clean. They are like sacred sites where God dwells. Filled  with His power and presence, we are to speak words of truth, touch,comfort,heal others, love and worship Him.  Just as we treat temples with respect, we should treat our  body with respect too, by keeping our heart and mind clean, reading, listening and watching only "things that are pleasing to God". So whatever you do, have God's Glory in mind. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 'Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the holy spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;you were bought at price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.'
