Living in God

Here’s a little something to think about. I’ve often heard people say things like, “God lives in me” or “God lives in people’s hearts.” While it is certainly true that God lives in people, (after all the Bible does say that our bodies are the “temple of the Holy Spirit”), saying “God lives inside of me” is only half the story. The Apostle Paul says, “In Him we live and move and have our being.” Actually, you and I and the entire cosmos live inside of God. Everything that has ever existed has existed in the mind of God from eternity past. So, in a real sense, there is only one reality-God. Nothing exists independent of God. The Scripture says that Christ is “before all things and in Him all things consist.” Without Christ, who is God, nothing would exist. And it is God who is holding everything together. From the birds to the trees to the sky to the giant cockroaches crawling around in your pipes underneath your bathroom-everything exists inside of God. Now that can blow your mind if you think about it for a while.

  1. Man, Aaron! That really puts things into perspective. Our God is a big God and just thinking about how he thought of us before he even made anything just blows me away!

  2. Wow, what a concept, Aaron! Defintely something to ponder…
