What would you do if Jesus came to your house? (Part I)
"But Jesus would not care if he were in the poorest house in the world or in the most expensive. It does not matter to him as long as he is with you, and you are with him."
Although he was king of the universe and God himself, Jesus entered this world humbly. Until wise men from the East appeared asking questions, Jerusalem's rulers were unaware of his birth. Jesus lived humbly, as well, working as a carpenter before starting his ministry. If our circumstances are humble, we can feel comfortable in his presence because he knows the limitations of poverty.
The Bible says Jesus became poor that we might become rich. Even if he had been born to wealthy Jewish parents, nothing on Earth could ever equal the glories of the heaven he left behind.
"And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross." (Philippians 2:8).
Think about this: As Christians gather this Thanksgiving, we need to remember that Jesus is present through his indwelling Spirit (I Corinthians 6:19).
Memorize this truth: "Where can I go from your Spirit? Or where can I flee from your presence?" (Psalm 139:7).
