God’s desire has always been for man to enjoy a loving relationship with Him. He walked in the garden with Adam and Eve and they enjoyed fellowship together—until sin entered separating them from His presence. But God in His infinite plan continued His contact with man and, before Jesus, lived among the people through His presence in the Ark of the Testimony. God never gave up on man nor turned His back on man. God continued drawing man to Himself. He sent Jesus representing Himself. Many New Testament believers responded and rejoiced in a living relationship with Him.
Today you and I, if we know His Son, Jesus, are privileged to enjoy His presence residing in us. Whereas before you could only see His presence in the form of the Ark, now you walk each day with God’s presence, His life and power IN you.
The Apostle Paul called it is mystery “which has been hid from ages and generations but now is made manifest to his saints…which is Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:26-27), and I trust you can say “…Christ lives in me..” (Galatians 2:20).
Enjoy God’s presence today. God’s love, power, acceptance, peace, joy, grace and fullness is IN you.
