When you become a Christian, something truly amazing happens: God comes to live inside your heart. You become the home of God.
First Corinthians 6:19 says it this way: Do you not know that your body is the temple (the very sanctuary) of the Holy Spirit Who lives within you, Whom you have received [as a Gift] from God? (AMP)
One of the things I love most about being at home is that I’m comfortable there. And since we are the home of Christ, we need to make sure He’s comfortable in us.
We need to do it because we love Him, honor Him and adore Him. Because if He’s not comfortable, then we can’t be comfortable. Do you ever experience a discomfort in your spirit? If so, ask yourself: Is there something in my life that’s making God uncomfortable?
If we’re going to really live the Christian life, we need to decide to surrender all of our heart and let God have access to every room in our “house.” And when God asks us to surrender the things in the rooms of our heart, we need to get excited, because something greater is coming.
We need to say, “God, I give You free reign because I know You are good and You love me and wouldn’t ask me to give up something if it wasn’t for my benefit.” Jesus paid a tremendous price for us to have a joyful, peaceful life and He doesn’t want to see us miserable.
