He Came To Dwell
And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying,
Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and
he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people,
and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. Rev 21:3
God sent His Son to earth to live with us. Jesus spent the last three years of His time here teaching, preaching, and healing.
The Father gave us a gift, His Son because He loves us. God chose to share Jesus with mere humankind.
When Jesus told His followers He would have to leave them, the Master told them He would send a helper, the Holy Spirit, to them.
When we accept Christ as our Savior, we ask Him to come into our hearts. He, in return, sends the Holy Spirit to live within us.
God gave us a gift over 2000 years ago. Even today, His Son lives in the hearts of those who love Him.
When Christ returns to earth, He will live with His people in the New Jerusalem.
