IS THAT A GOOD IDEA? What if our tastes in decor differ?
WHAT EXACTLY would I be getting myself into if Jesus, Son of God, moved in?
The Home Maker’s IMPRESSIVE résumé:
Jesus IS God = 2 for 1 deal. John 10:30
He won the war over death. His victory is my victory. John 11:25-26
He overcame the sin and sickness. 1 Corinthians 15:57
He overcame all temptation. (previous blog)
He promised, “Do not fear, for I am with you.” Isaiah 41:10
He is the way, truth, and life — better than a BOGO deal. John 14:6
When He sets up house in me:
He brings the Victory with Him; 1John 5:4-5
I fight from a place (in my core) of Victory.
He fills the pantry with the Courage; John 16:33
I’ve got a personal arsenal of divine power.
He installs windows of “Escape” from temptations that entice all men; 1Cor 10:13
The common temptations that entice me no longer have the final say over my actions.
He installs doors of opportunity that unlock at just the right moments;
I knock (often), and the door will open. Rev 3:7-8; 2 Cor 2:12
He installs an “armor” room; Eph 6:10-18
I get to wear full, rust-free armor. Daily.
He is the front door; John 10:7-10
The enemy has to get through Him first to get to me.
He builds the best “war room”;
I can pray directly to the Father (no matter my physical location). Psa 139:7-12
In the war room are accurate maps; Jer 33:3
This direct access let’s me know the way.
In the war room is only truth; John 16:13-14
When doubts rise up, I can exchange them in this room.
In the war room is revelation; Psa 119:98
I can see through the enemy’s schemes.
He was and still is sin-less; 1 John 1:7-9
As needed, I can ask forgiveness in the shower of His cleansing (from within).
THIS SUPERIOR home-making comes with one condition: TRUST
Then Christ will make His home in your hearts as you trust in Him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Ephesians 3:17-19
