Have you ever thought God wants to live in us? . . . you may say how could the Almighty God wants to live in us since He is too big and we are too small, or how could God wants to live in us since He is righteous and we are sinners.
You are right, He is too big and we are too small; He is righteous and we are sinners; He is our Creator and we are His creature. We may not be deserved to be His living place. However, we are the best creature of His hand-work. We, human-beings are the only creature that God breathed His breath in our nostrils. We are the only creature who have been given authority over the creation of the world; over the nature, over the animals, over the birds and etc.
Nevertheless, we didn’t use the power that God has given us as the first man, Adam did sin and fired from the place where he was supposed to be live. Therefore, Adam not only missed to live in the paradise but also he lost the privilege and the authority over the nature and the privilege to be a father-son relationship with God.
However, God didn’t want to ignore Adam forever so that He sent His Son Jesus Christ, the new Adam who is not from earth but from the heaven.
Therefore, as we missed eternity because of Adam, the earth, we have got eternity because of Adam, the heaven. The Bible tells if every body accept Jesus Christ as His own personal Savior, He/She will have eternal life and God lives with him/her.
God not lives in every body spirit but He lives in the spirit of the born again men, who accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. What an awesome God! He sent His only Son to be killed by His own people for the sake of His own people. Unfortunately, the whole world seem crazy neglecting the eternal truth.
1 Corinthians 3:16 ~ Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dewelleth in you?
