ACTS : 7 v 39-50
God's dwelling place
My bible reading today was Acts 7 . Vs 39 - 50 . I was prompted to think of the wonderful things we see and hear in His word .
How would we go about explaining what it is like to be human ? God has used symbols to help us , for example the tabernacle was a reminder of His presence to the Israelites in the desert . However God seems bigger than the tabernacle - not confined to four walls !
When Jesus departed His earthly ministry for Heaven He left the Holy Spirit available to all so that the Church may grow and expand . He is in the father and the father is in us , as John tells us .
I wonder where do we dwell ?
'Heaven is my throne , and the earth is my footstool . What kind of home will you build for me ? says the Lord or where will my resting place be ? ' Acts 7 : 49 .
