Are you at home with Jesus? What I am asking is this, would you feel comfortable sitting in your living room or across the table from Jesus? Or maybe, do you spend time with Jesus?
Yesterday I asked our church family about being at home with Jesus. This is a heart issue and a huge issue at that. God moves into our lives and into our hearts when we are saved. He is there, but we don't always act like it.
Here are some notes and verses to chew on:
WHERE JESUS IS
Ephesians 3:17 (nlt) --- 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.
THE TRUTH or REALITY
Matthew 15:18 (nlt) --- But the words you speak come from the heart—that's what defiles you.
Psalm 19:14 (nlt) --- May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you,O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.
I have been spending some time lately with a guy who loves Jesus and is a deep thinker when it comes to the Bible and God issues. This morning in our conversation we were both moved by the fact that we love to spend time with Jesus, but in turn Jesus really enjoys spending time with us (and you). Our desire and prayer is to let Christ be at home in our hearts and for us to feel at home with Christ. That is a big deal.
Philippians 4:7 (nlt) --- Then you will experience God's peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.
