Exodus 25:8 NKJV - "And let them make Me a sanctuary, that I may dwell among them."
God desired and still desires to "dwell among" His own children. He said that to Moses as He began to instruct him on building a tabernacle. But later in the Bible we know God did something more than that. He didn't have a building built, He came down in a human body!! John 1:14 says, "And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us..." The word "dwelt" means "He tabernacled among us!"
One of the greatest truths I try to impress on believers is that Christ lives in them. Galatians 2:20 says, "...Christ lives in me..." You can't get closer to someone than that! And God made the decision to enter our lives. Why is it so hard for us to get a hold of this truth and enjoy what it means? We have God living His life in us. Reread that sentence a few times and ask God to impact your daily life with this truth!
