God certainly does not ask for, require or need money spent on buildings. We are His dwelling place and the ones who are still building temples haven’t seen the fullness of the unseeen realm in themselves yet. I believe it’s coming and the patience of God, knowing when and where each heart will truly see who they’ve always been, gives me great peace in watching each person walk out their journey with their loving creator.
The bible tells us that everything was made by Christ, through him and for him. There is nothing that was made that was not created in him. That includes you. You’ve been safely positioned in Christ since before time began and nothing in this realm or the unseen realm could ever change that. There’s no place that is not sustained by Christ. We tend to think we’ve carved out a nitch in time and space where we can breathe without the breath of God breathing for us. David said even if he made his bed in his own hell that God was with him. Abiding in Christ simply (and profoundly) means going within yourself to satisy your soul with the eternal truth of your union with the Trinity. Everything you need for peace and joy is in you. We try to find it in any number of ways outside of ourselves but when we’re alone with ourselves those outsides sources fade and we feel the need to be pumped up again and again. The truth is you can close your eyes and ponder the great power that is within you. You’ve got a personal message for all of humanity to hear and as you rest in your uniqueness and trust that your heart is good, your voice will effortlessly flow out of you. Your heart is led by peace and Jesus showed us that the human form is God’s favorite dwelling place. You. You have always made His heart swell with pride and joy. Even as we stumble through life with our blinders, He understands our shortsightedness and He knows are infinite value. You’ve been judged righteous, holy and blameless. You can recognize that you are in Christ because you are breathing. Simple and true.
