Christ in you…

And let them make me a sanctuary, that I may dwell in their midst.Exodus 25:8

We see here how the Lord creates a manner in which He can dwell with his chosen people (the Israelites).  His presence dwelt among them, but not in them – because they were still covered in Sin (and God, who is totally holy, cannot dwell in the same place as Sin).  It was only possible for God to dwell in us, through Jesus Christ.  Check this out…

“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:8-10

When we believe in Jesus, He can live IN us.  This is powerful!  God no longer just looks down on us, or at us, He actually lives in us.  This week, as you walk about your daily lives, be conscious of the fact that because you have accepted the work of Jesus on the cross, He has made His home (temple) IN you – and so YOU have become a temple that houses the presence of God!  When we catch this revelation, everything changes.  We no longer interface with God, from a distance.  No,  “For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.” Phil 2:13
