Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.
1 John 4:15
Abide in Me, and I (Jesus) in you...
But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.
the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.
Think about these scriptures.
Read them out loud so you can hear them.
Meditate on them.
If you can get this one truth it will revolutionize your life completely!
God Himself lives in you!
Think about what that means. Why should we ever be timid or shy if God is living in us? How can we ever think that we are incapable of anything if God lives in us? Why should sickness be allowed to live in the same dwelling place as God? It is time for us to recognize this wonderful truth!
John G. Lake was known for standing in front of the mirror in the morning and saying: "God lives in that man, in that suit of clothes. And where that suit of clothes goes, God goes." John G. Lake had many wonderful miracles wrought through his ministry and the secret was an understanding that God lived in him.
Of course there is one criteria for God to live in you, you must have invited Him in. If you have not invited Him in yet then please visit What is the Gospel for an explanation of how to do that. God is waiting for you. He has already done everything required for your salvation and all you need to do is accept it.
Then after you have accepted the salvation through Jesus Christ you can pray and ask God to baptize you in the Holy Spirit. Jesus, in Luke 24:49, called it being "endued with power from on high." Jesus also promised that God would give the Holy Spirit to those who asked Him (Luke 11:13).
It's time for the church to recognize who lives in them!
