The Three W’s
- God’s WORD for the week. I hope you enjoy this week’s printable (download here). Here’s your bonus scripture:
- Ashley’s WRITING (from pages 123 and 130).
“The Word became flesh. Jesus embodied the presence of God because He was and is God. The Greek for ‘took up residence among us’ could be literally translated ‘tabernacled among us.’ Jesus set up camp in the midst of His people” (p. 123).
“Jesus told us that it was to our benefit that He return to Heaven because God was sending His Spirit to reside in human parts” (p. 130).
“As God’s living ‘temples,’ our lives are constant, living, breathing symbols of His grand rescue plan for all the world” (p. 130).
- See God’s Word at WORK in your world (this week’s challenge):
Since WE are the tabernacle, we meet with God in our hearts and we carry Jesus to the world. This week:
- Play the Spotify List (it is a free app for mobile devices and computers). Spend time in your everyday life cultivating awareness of God’s presence (when washing dishes, exercising, driving around)…enjoy the reminder that, wherever you are, God dwells with you!
- Take His presence to someone else—plan to bring them God’s grace (something we enjoy, but none of us deserves)—a book, a meal, a note, some flowers? A good word? Share the Spotify List? As you share your hope with others, remember to respond as God would:
“God has preserved a remnant, elected by grace. Grace is central in God’s action here, and it has nothing to do with deeds prescribed by the law. If it did, grace would not be grace” (Romans 11:5,6).
