He Lives And Walks In Us by Pastor E.A Adeboye

He Lives And Walks In Us by Pastor E.A Adeboye

What? know ye not that your body is the
temple of the Holy Ghost which is in
you, which ye have of God, and ye are
not your own (1 Corinthians 6:19).

I
n Exodus 25:8, God expressed His desire to
dwell in the midst of His people. He said, “…let
them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell
among them.” Notice He didn’t say, “…that I may visit
them,” no; not a visit. He said, “…that I may dwell
among them.”

Moses obeyed God’s instruction, and rallied the
children of Israel to bring all the necessary offerings
to build a beautiful sanctuary in accordance with the
pattern and plan God gave him. However, that wasn’t
good enough. God wanted a new sanctuary and
showed David a vision of the new sanctuary; He gave
him the design and specifications.

ilver for the building of the temple. Nevertheless,
it was Solomon, his son, who was approved of God
to build the temple, and he built God a magnificent
temple. Again, God was still not satisfied. The Bible
says, “Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples
made with hands; as saith the prophet” (Acts 7:48).

Then Jesus came on the scene and said, “…I will
build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail
against it” (Matthew 16:18). The word translated,
“Church” means “assembly or congregation of the
called out ones.” It’s therefore not a physical building,
but a living tabernacle of human beings, called and
chosen of God.

Ephesians 2:21-22 NIV says, “In him the whole
building is joined together and rises to become a holy
temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built
together to become a dwelling in which God lives by
his Spirit.” We’re God’s habitation through the Spirit!
His vision to dwell in the midst of His people has been
realized in us.

2 Corinthians 6:16 says, “…for ye are the temple
of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them,
and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they
shall be my people.” Each one of us is a temple of the
Holy Spirit. He lives and walks in us. God’s dream from
the foundation of the world is now fulfilled in us. The
mystery that was hidden from ages and generations has
now been made manifest, and fulfilled. The mystery is,
Christ in you, the hope of glory (Colossians 1:26-27).
Hallelujah!

PRAYER
Precious Father, I worship and adore you; thank you
for making me your dwelling place. I acknowledge
your Spirit living in me, protecting, guiding, and
leading me in your perfect will. Thank you for
beautifying my life with the glory of your presence, in
Jesus’ Name. Amen.
