You’re the Dwelling Place of God [Part 2]

By Alan Wright — February 14, 2020

Are you ready for some good news?

In Ephesians 2:22 Paul declares that you are the dwelling place of God.

How can we even begin to wrap our minds around such an announcement? We are talking about the Creator of the ends of the earth who has no beginning and no end.

He is the One who made our sun, which, though an ordinary star, could be filled with one million earths. We’re talking about the One who also made the Canis Majoris star – the Big Dog. It’s a star so massive that it would take seven quadrillion earths to fill it up. 

This is the God who has made every molecule. 18 milliliters of water contains 6 X 10 to the 23rd molecules of water. If you had that many marshmallows you could cover the entire surface of the earth to a depth of five miles. Talk about s’mores!

And this God – the God of the biggest star and the smallest molecule – dwells in the heart of the believer!

No longer is there a temple with walls of separation to disqualify you from entrance. There is no longer a Gentile Court, a Women’s Court, a Jewish Men’s Court, a Priest’s Court and a High Priest’s inner sanctum. Instead, the born again people of God have been mystically, organically united by the Spirit of Christ Himself into an invisible temple.

You are the temple of the Holy Spirit. Where you go, He goes. What you see, God sees. You aren’t guided by ideology or rules, you are led by Him. You are the dwelling place of God. And that’s the Gospel!


Sharing the Light exists to share the light of Jesus Christ, the New Covenant that He has fulfilled, and the kingdom that He has inaugurated, such that people experience God’s love, are set free by fresh understandings of themselves and God, and mature into heirs of deep spiritual riches in Christ so they can fulfill their destinies to change the world.
