Your House 

  
In the old Testiment, God’s temple was a place to leave the world outside and enter into His presence.  A place to experience His love and mercy. A place to hear His Word and ask for His forgiveness. A place to get your priorities right and your perspective adjusted. A place to for Him to meet with you. It was a place where the sacrifice could be made so that His people could enter into His presence and more to point, that His presence could enter His people. 

In the New Testiment, Jesus became the sacrifice for sins and the Temple of God moved from a building to a heart…yours. A place to leave the world outside and enter into His presence.  A place to experience His love and mercy. A place to hear His Word and ask for His forgiveness. A place to get your priorities right and your perspective adjusted. A place to for God to meet with you. 

Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? 1 Corinthians‬ ‭6:19‬ ‭NLT‬‬

God’s desire is to make your “house” His home. You may not know what to do with your heart but God does. Your mind may seem erratic but God knows how to calm it. Your emotions may seem out of control but God knows how get them organized.

If you give Jesus full access to remodel “your house”, He will make it into His home and you will find that you like living there too.
