Imagine how amazing it must have been for the Israelites in the wilderness to know that the very presence of God lived just on the other side of the curtains of the Tabernacle. God, in all His power and glory, was… right there! But in time, they began to take God’s presence for granted, and their hearts turned away to idols. As a result, they lost His presence! Did you know that God still longs to dwell with us today, but He will not do so if we have any other “gods” before Him. Are we actively cultivating our hearts to be a pure, holy, welcoming place for God’s presence to dwell?
Will You Finish What You Start This Year?
It’s easier to start something than it is to finish it… It’s easier to get married than to stay married. It’s easier to have children than to raise children. It’s easier to start school than to finish school. And most dangerous of all, it’s easier to receive Jesus as Savior than it is to follow Him all the days of your life as Lord. One thing is sure… this year you will be tempted to quit something you shouldn’t quit. Will you be prepared to use Christ as your example to press through those times as He pressed through for you?
