“…and God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.” 2 Corinthians 6:16
The religious mind-set is one that alienates us of the power of God. The religious mind-set is fixed with the assumption that God is up in heaven and we are on the earth. The religious mind-set is God-outside minded. The Gospel of Christ teaches us to renew our minds to be God-inside minded.
When Jesus died on the cross there was an earthquake that tore the veil in the temple from top to bottom. That was the veil that represented the separation between God and man. When the veil was torn, God’s presence was released from behind the veil. That is when everything changed! Now, WE are the temple of God!
The Bible defines us as new creations, filled with the same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead; that we have been delivered from the power of darkness and translated into the kingdom of God! We are supernaturally empowered, treasure-filled, redeemed, restored and reconciled… all for the purpose that God might indwell us!
This is not something we have to talk ourselves into. It’s already been done by God! We simply need to accept what the Bible has declared! Jesus was God-inside minded. He said “…the Father that dwells in Me, He does the works.” (John 14:10) The Apostle Paul said, “…Christ lives in me…” (Gal. 2:20) Let’s get rid of the religious mind-set that says, “God is out there somewhere.” Let’s renew our minds to the reality that God indwells us, and be God-Inside Minded! That’s our identity, and His gift to us for eternity!
