John 14:23 New Home
Jesus replied, “All who love me will do what I say. My Father will love them, and we will come and make our home with each of them.
When Rob was teaching on Sunday, he said that if Christ hadn’t intervened and taken our sins away we would be habitual, chronic, eternal liars, cheaters, thieves, adulterers, addicts, etc. None of those things we’ve done can be taken away, we’d never have a clean slate and no do-overs because people don’t have the power to declare ourselves “good”– even if we are really really sorry and full of regret.
But Jesus can forgive us and take all that away forever.
Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
You are not your own... I belong to Jesus, yes, that is true. I live the new life he gives me and that means all my sins are not my own anymore either. He wipes the slate clean for everyone who repents and believes that he did.
And what does he do? My Father will love them, and we will come and make our home with each of them. New Life New Home (not just one day) Every Day!
