I have started a reading plan on YouVersion bible app by Jefferson Bethke. I thought it would be a good topic to talk about plus it will help me to comprehend and remember what I have read. The first two days have been talking about how this life, and this time on the Earth (even back to Adam and Eve) is part of God’s story. Each person that He created has a small part of the larger story.
I know God has shown me over the past 36 years of my life that He has me here for a reason, and basically put, it’s to show others His love.
The second day of the study is talking about how Christ is our tabernacle that came to Earth. God always wanted to just dwell among us, side by side, which is why He came in the garden, and why He had the tabernacle and the temple built. He wanted to be near us, His creation. He sent Christ to come, and now the Holy Spirit resides and dwells within those who have asked Christ into their lives. I love the simplicity of the Gospel. We have a tendency to make it so much harder than it really is. Christ came to save us, so we can spend eternity with Him. He just asks that in return we share that news with everyone. Which brings me back to my first point. Our story, my story, and why we are here.
There are obviously specifics as to what exactly I should do with the people around me that I influence but it still remains the simplicity of the good news of the Gospel of Christ.
He came, He loved, He healed, He prayed, He sacrificed. Now it’s your turn (and mine) to do the same.
