But who is able to build a temple for him, since the heavens, even the highest heavens, cannot contain him? Who then am I to build a temple for him, except as a place to burn sacrifices before him? —II Chronicles 2:6
God is awesome! He is grand and magnificent! The heavens or any of creation cannot contain Him. I am overwhelmed with the thought of how immense He is. Ponder this… eternal King Jesus left His glorious abode in Heaven to enter time on this puny planet to impact our lives. He did this so we can know Him now and be with Him in His eternal abode one day. Wow! Wow! What glorious love He has toward us!
He is awesome! This One whom the heavens cannot contain lives in us by faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. Brother and sister consider this— we are eternally in relationship with Him. One day these earthly tents will be shed and packed up and we will go to our home with Jesus forever (II Corinthians 5:4). Oooooh the best is truly ahead. With gratitude “let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith” (Hebrews 12:1-2). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XIpnW3rtRQ4 And let us tell others about Him so they also can know Him now and be with Him forever! (Romans 10:13-15).
Dear Father, may I live a life that is pleasing to You now and keep my eyes on Jesus while doing so. Yes, please help me to keep my eyes fixed on Jesus. May this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus.
