“If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.” –Jesus John 14:23
What a concept! The God of the universe living inside of us. Crazy when you think about it.
What does your “home” look like? Maybe you’ve done a good job on the exterior with landscaping and a fresh coat of paint, but are you ok with Jesus coming inside the front door? What will He find inside? What does your kitchen look like where all your appetites live? What about your library? What kinds of things are you reading or watching? What about your bedroom?
Maybe you feel pretty good about your home, but what if Jesus snooped around a bit and looked in your closet or even in your attic?
Maybe it’s time to go back through the rooms in your life, and see where you might have made a mess.
P.S. There is a great little book that expounds on this idea by Robert Boyd Munger called My Heart Christ’s Home. It’s an easy read. Check it out!
