Organizing the Inside – Day 87 Greater Works Than These

“I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father.  ~John 14:12

Solomon built a temple which was the place where God would dwell.
The Lord loved Israel and wanted to be among His chosen people.  He adored her and even though she did not obey Him perfectly when Israel turned her heart toward God He forgave and restored her former glory.  God had Solomon build this temple and agreed to honor the request of those who turned toward it. There were a great many sacrifices made at the temple and only the priest could go into the sacred place of the temple.  God made tremendous provisions to have a people He could dwell with.

Jesus had to leave, so that the Holy Spirit could come.
He gave us the promise that He would send the Spirit of Truth who is the Comforter. The Holy Spirit of God would come and have true fellowship among His beloved children. Once Jesus was sacrificed as the perfect sin offering, for once and for all, God could have what He wanted most; true fellowship with His children.

What does it mean to you to have fellowship with God?
Our heavenly Father went to great lengths to redeem us from sin, so that we could know Him and have a relationship with Him.  He is a Holy and loving God who has shown us mercy time and time again. It’s hard to comprehend the love that He has for us that He would choose to dwell with us and in us.  No human logic or intellectual interpretation of His divine goodness could ever articulate how much He must love His children.

There is a remarkable power resting in you.
The Holy Spirit who appeared as cloven tongues of fire, on the Day of Pentecost now lives in born again believers. Our lives must consist of true worship and honor God by recognizing who He is. He demonstrates His awesome power under control as He lives on the inside of a temple not made with hands. He built the universe and the earth is His footstool, yet He is the same God who sits and talks with us when we come to Him. Discover your whole duty, your true purpose while here on earth. You have been enlightened and empowered by the Spirit of Truth that lives in you.

What are you doing?  Determine now not to trade your fellowship for illicit activities that shouldn’t even be mentioned among us. Don’t trade your time with an omnipotent and Holy God for a television program or an extra 20 minutes of sleep. May God help you not spend your time looking at worthless things or contemplating issues that really don’t matter.  Open your eyes and see the higher purpose the greater assignment, the deeper meaning of why you are here and have been given the power you have. Choose today to get busy doing what the Holy God of Israel has called you out from among them to do. Also read 1 Corinthians 6:19 and Romans 12:1

It’s it time we all Get Organized, Simplify Our Lives and Glorify God?
