November 16, 2019: SOAP #3635:  2Cor 3-6

Scripture:  2Corinthians (NIV) 6:16 For we are the templeof the living God. As God has said: “I will live with them and walk amongthem, and I will be their God, and they will be my people.” 17“Therefore come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch nounclean thing, and I will receive you.” 18 “I will be a Father toyou, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”

Observation:  Witheven a limited understanding of God, God's offer is so far beyond what weshould expect"who would ever knowingly reject His offer?   He asks us to separate ourselves from theworld.  And this God of creation willconsider us His sons and daughters and we will be allowed to consider His asour Father!   He even sends His Son todie in payment for our sins!!!

He will live with us and experience life with us.  We will live with Him and experience lifewith Him.  He will share our daily lifeand we will share His daily life!  Whocould refuse God's offer??? 

Application:   What anhonor that the God of all creation wants to share my daily life!  He is my Father; I am His son! 

Prayer:   HeavenlyFather, thank you for sending the Holy Spirit to help me become more aware ofyour presence in my daily life.  Amen
