Where’s your favorite place to live? Some choose the beach, others the mountains, and still others like a high-rise apartment in the middle of a bustling city.
I prefer a quiet suburb, close to the city and its attractions, but far enough away to escape the chaos. Sirens are rare where we live. So are traffic jams. I love our neighborhood and our home.
There’s nothing quite like finding that perfect house to live in. Whether you’re there right now, or working toward it, you know all the features that make you say, “This is the one!”
When I consider the Holy Spirit’s chosen place to dwell—in those who belong to Christ—I marvel at what a privilege that is. Out of all the creatures on the earth, He picked us. We’re prone to wander, stumble often, and lose perspective easily (or is that just me?), but like a family moving into a vacant house, He gives us life. Amazing!
If that isn’t proof that He delights in us, I don’t know what is.
