Homeless God?

I have never lived in a house... - 1 Chronicles 17 v 5

David wanted to do God a favour he wanted to build Him a lavish house. God wanted to stay homeless! A house was not something that he lacked it was something that could never contain Him.

God pointed Nathan and David towards Jesus who would build a house that could truly reflect the glory of God. Jesus was to be the "chief cornerstone" and we were to be "living stones".

We have built many churches many are incredible structures of beauty and filled with wonderful art but they are just buildings. Sacred not.

But we as part of Jesus kingdom have become temples (homes) to the Holy Spirit bringing and demonstrating the values and beauty of His kingdom.

God is no longer homeless because he found the only home he ever wanted, you!
