God dwells with His people. In spite of their sinfulness, in spite of His holiness, God wants to live in the midst of His people.
God’s orignial dwelling wasn’t a palace or a temple of marble and gold; it was a tent. God tented–tabernacled–with a people wandering in the wilderness. And if those people needed direction or guidance, if those people needed their sins taken away and their guilt atoned for, if those people wanted to bring their offerings of thanksgiving and praise, they knew where to find Him. If you were looking for the God of heaven and earth, you went to His tent.
God still dwells with His people. In fact, John tells us, in the person of Jesus, the Word became flesh and dwellt–tabernacled–among us. That same Jesus still comes to meet us. That same God still promises to show up in our lives, especially in worship, where God promises to be present to forgive sins and strengthen our faith and faithfulness.
So if you are looking for God, look for God where He promises to be found. On this discipleship journey you can count on finding God in His tent. Join us for regular, intentional worship here at Peace.
