When we invite Jesus into our lives, He lives with us in our world. At the same time, we enter into His Kingdom and live in Him in His world. We are new creatures living in a new dwelling place. We walk on earth’s dusty streets and by faith on the streets of gold at the same time.
The Dwelling Place
There is a dwelling place
Where there is freedom while in a firm embrace.
This place is as safe and as secure,
As it is holy and as it is pure.
It has only one entrance and it is full of light.
Wise are the ones that have found the way of right.
In this place there is no fear or shame.
Abundance, health, and mercy are in His name.
Love’s touch is very evident in this place.
Sweet adoration is lifted under the banner of His grace.
Eternal benefits are sure profit to each soul,
That allows the Holy Spirit full control.
When you abide in Jesus and as He abides in you,
You become a holy dwelling place too.
One in the Spirit, with Him as one,
A refuge to others to become.
The Church is built up with living stones.
No man dwells in this place all alone.
The One that loves more than you will ever understand,
Makes His home with the redeemed just as He planned.
A place that allows peace and rest to all that come in;
A wonderful, holy work to house all that are drawn to Him.
LORD, thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations.
Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
