Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? – 1 Corinthians 3:16

God resides in me? First of all, this is amazing. We need take the time to bask in the fact that our Creator resides within us. Isn’t it hard to believe? Honestly, there are many times I doubt it myself. I am a messed up man struggling against my sinful nature.

In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God. – Romans 8:26-27

He prays for me? This is too hard to believe.

He intercedes for me? Impossible. I’m not worthy to be loved.

And yet God loves me. God chose me and I chose Him. His Son, my Lord and my God, Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins.

This morning is a good morning to bask in the sovereignty of God and enjoy His presence within me.
