Purpose His Presence

In the Old Testament, the Ark of the Covenant represented the presence of God. It was a physical object or symbol that those folks used to purpose His presence. It didn’t take a physical object for God to be present in their lives.  He just was and is and will forevermore be present in our lives.  But, sometimes we need “Jesus with skin on”.  We need a physical reminder that He is present in our daily lives.  He cares about our daily lives. He wants to be part of our daily lives. Continuing on with David and the Israelites.  David purposes to have God moved back into the lives of the people. To do this the Ark of the Covenant had to be relocated. They had to make a physical effort to purpose God in their daily life. This starts with our physical and spiritual surrender to Christ and the acceptance of His sacrifice on Calvary for our sin.  We must make that move for ourselves. No one can do that for us. Have you made that move?  Once the Ark of the Covenant was moved, on a new cart I might add, David and all the Israelites celebrated with all their might before God.  They brought out the harps, tambourines, the cymbals, and the trumpets and they sang loud in celebration. (1 Chronicles 13:7-8) We want to do that too.  Consider joining us on October 21 at 3:00 at Cumming Elementary School as we celebrate His presence. And if you’re looking for something to B-NEW in your life, Jesus is the answer.  #BNEW2017
