The Bible Speaks – Housing It is distressing to hear that many low-income residents of Littleton may be forced to find new housing elsewhere (July 18 Independent). Having a house, a home, is central to our makeup as humans. It is one of the paradoxes of God that even though He is spirit & present everywhere, He has often chosen to “dwell” in a “house”. He dwelt in the Tabernacle during Israel’s sojourn from Egypt to Palestine & for years thereafter. Later He dwelt in Solomon’s Temple. He had a house, Herod’s Temple, in Jerusalem in Jesus’ day. During the future millennium, God will again dwell in a rebuilt temple in Jerusalem. So where does He dwell today? Today God’s house is not a building but a people, the Church. Christians are the temple of God (1 Cor 6:19). Christ lives in us (John 14:20b, Col 1:27) Praise God for that purifying truth. email@example.com
