Does He live ‘up there’, you know… Heaven?
How often have we heard the phase, “God is in the house”. I’m even guilty of having used this phrase.
It sounds good.
It stirs the emotions.
It’s exciting… But, it’s not really correct!
“However, the Most High does not live in houses made by human hands. As the prophet says: “‘Heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool. What kind of house will you build for me? says the Lord. Or where will my resting place be? Has not my hand made all these things?’…”
So where does God live?
If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God lives in them and they in God.
1 John 4:15
Wow! So no matter where a Christian goes, God is there! God is simply, “in”.
Now that is good news indeed.
