On Abiding (part 2) - an amazing God we serve (1 John 3:23-24)

"And this is his commandment, that we believe in the name of his Son Jesus Christ and love one another, just as he has commanded us. Whoever keeps his commandments abides in him, and he in them. And by this we know that he abides in us, by the Spirit whom he has given us. " - 1 John 3:23-24

While this is something I've learned before, I'm re-learning it and it's bringing me great joy and I'm thrilled to be sharing it with you.

This is our God. Our savior and creator. The same God who made the laws of physics such that we get a rush out of mountain biking, four wheeling, rugby, or whatever it is that pumps you up. This is the same God. He made the laws of gravity, and centripetal force so that I can ride my bike out in the farm land near my house and praise Him for the beauty of His creation. This is the God that lets us abide in Him.

He gives us the privilege of dwelling in Him, and choosing to dwelling in us. And we know it by the Spirit whom He has given us!

This compels me to believe his in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and to love my neighbor and friend.

An amazing God we serve. Big enough to create the cosmos, and loving enough to dwell inside each of us.
