What an amazing God we serve. I recently told a good friend that there’s a big difference between being religious (multiplicity of rules impossible to follow) and knowing Jesus personally (relationship).
On the day Moses set up the Tabernacle,
he anointed it and set it apart as holy…
I’m slowly absorbing how God’s meticulously defined boundaries protected his people from his holiness; and then marveling at how he himself shattered those under-the-penalty-of-death formalities with penalty-paid-in-full intimacy….
You know that you are God’s sanctuary
and that God’s Spirit lives in you,
1 Corinthians 3:16
For we know
that when this earthly tent we live in
is taken down
(that is, when we die and leave this earthly body),
we will have a house in heaven,
an eternal body made for us by God himself
and not by human hands.
2 Corinthians 5:1
I get too eager to share my love for the Lord sometimes and jump the gun with words; but I never want to beat my friends over the head with my faith—and so I pray…
please help me to never disturb
the caterpillar-to-butterfly transformations
that you are engineering.
In Jesus name I pray,
