God is in me since when I invited Jesus into my heart! God is in you if you have already invited Jesus into your heart! Instead of needing to go or to find God, thanks to Jesus, we can find Jesus no matter where we are at because Jesus is Immanuel, God with us!
In this world, we will have troubles but thanks to Jesus we have hope because Jesus has overcome it this world! He took on the form of a man and was beaten and crucified for our sins but that wasn’t the end, He conquered the power of sin and death and then rose again three days later!
Thanks to Jesus, when we started our lifelong relationship our future changed and opens ourselves to spend eternity with God in heaven.
As Romans 18:8 tells us
“[But what of that?] For I consider that the sufferings of this present time (this present life) are not worth being compared with the glory that is about to be revealed to us and in us and for us and conferred on us!”
— from Romans 8:18 AMPC
How will you respond or answer in times of suffering? How will you respond to the pain? Will you invite Jesus and mourn with those who mourn? How will you respond to celebrations? Will you invite Jesus and rejoice with those who are rejoicing?
We as believers are to be the body! We as believers are to be the living stones! The new temple is made of living stones with Jesus as the foundation and the cornerstone. So it is no longer necessary to go to a place to meet with God, we can meet with God directly and intimately, right where we are at.
So let’s put God first in our lives! Let’s seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness! Thanks to Jesus all we have to do is turn back to God and invite Him into our very situation.
God is no longer out there somewhere thanks to Jesus! He is with us when we invite Jesus into our hearts! For those who won’t receive Jesus, He is a stumbling stone and trips them up from starting the eternal relationship God so wants with all of us because God is love! God is good all the time! All the time, God is good! So make Jesus to be your cornerstone and put all your trust in Him!
We are to be God’s spiritual house! We are to be the body going into this world and making a difference! We are to love God and love people! Let’s be God’s hands and arms! Let’s share God’s love with the world around us! Let’s let them know that He is alive! Let’s let them know how loved they are!
