What do you do when people are coming over? I know at our house we pick up. We vacuum. We dust. We put things away—we want everything to look nice for our guests. Think how much more you might do if a famous person were coming to visit. What if GOD was coming? This week in Immerse we are reading about what was involved in God coming to live among the Israelites. There is a LOT of getting ready when God is coming!
One of the themes all through the Bible is about God’s desire to live with us – from the Garden, to the tabernacle, to the temple, to Jesus, to the coming of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost, to the great end of the story with the coming together of the New Heavens and the New Earth– all of it is about God’s desire to be with us. As we see the laborious detail spelled out in Exodus about building the tabernacle, let’s think about what we do to welcome God into our own lives today.
In some ways our Christian life is about us becoming people in whom God’s Spirit lives. That involves us picking up our trash and cleaning up our mess, and it also involves us being transformed by God’s presence with us. How is being a Christian changing you? How are you different compared to last year because you are following Jesus?
Join us on Sunday as we look at what it means to have God living with us, right now!
Grateful for you—
