Thursday 2/22 ~ God does not dwell where?

The scripture for today, February 22 2/22), is Ephesians 2:22 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:

0-HS-592 VersesExamined-COVER-Thumbnail“And in him, you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.”

Another place in the New Testament, 2nd Corinthians 6:16, says we are the temple of God. A lot of things in worship under the Law of Moses were a literal version of what Christians someday would enjoy in a spiritual and deeper sense.

We have no need for the temple in Jerusalem, for now, God dwells in Christians. We have no need for the altar of sacrifice at that temple because Jesus was our final sacrifice (Hebrews 10:4-12). We have no need for the cymbals, harps and lyres played in worship because Christians play on the strings of their hearts (Ephesians 5:19).

We have no need for the priestly system in the Law of Moses with the special vestments and titles because all Christians are priests (1st Peter 2:5). And how do we serve as priests? Romans 12:1 explains it: “Offer your bodies as living sacrifices.”

What a concept! God does not dwell in temples or church buildings!

He dwells in Christians.

      He lives and moves through Christians.

          What a privilege.

              What a responsibility!

      Hi. You could copy and paste it into your Facebook page. Or you can sign up for my Facebook page, but it is very unreliable, only notifying 10% of my followers. If you click my email message and go to my website, it may copy a little better. Give both a try and let me know what happens. Thanks.
