Is Jesus in your house?

Make-our-home-John-14-23

Is Jesus welcome in every room of your house? Every area of your life? 

Today we’re asking him to tour our homes with us, letting him look under the beds, peek into the closets, see inside our pantries.

Invite him to renovate each space, bringing revival and renewal. . .

  • To the activities that go on in that space
  • To the people who walk through its doors
  • To the relationships lived out there

Join me today at Do Not Depart where we’re printing this as a guide, then receiving Jesus’s presence into every room of the house.

    Your title grabbed me this morning, Lisa, as I continue my slow unpacking, sorting, arranging of our new home. Yesterday it was all about lamps here, there, everywhere. How appropriate your words today. For He is the light, not only of the world and of our hearts, but of our living spaces, too.

    Amen!

      Moving into a new house is a great time to do a house blessing. I’m certain you’ve prayed MANY times in your house already, Linda! I’m glad Jesus is lighting it up in every way. You will bless many through him in its spaces in the years to come.

    Hi Lisa. Such an inspiring idea to focus on inviting Jesus into every room of our house. It makes me reflect… He is always right beside us, but do we actually welcome Him? Do we actually allow Him or do we shut off our hearts to some things in our lives? I love this – “And when we allow Him into the center of it all—even our messes, perhaps especially our messes—He brings His peace along with Him.” Yes, even our messes. Thank you, Lisa.

      Exactly, Trudy. Jesus IS always with us, everywhere we go. But are we aware of his presence? And are we even happy about it when we do become aware of it? Soul-searching questions for myself. Thanks for sharing.

    So true Lisa! I do want Him to live in every part of my home. I remember years ago hearing a Christian speaker talk about this very topic. I went home and went through closets and cupboards and discarded many things. It was a cleansing for me in so many ways. I want to honor Him always.

    I was so glad to see your smiling face on Bonnie’s linkup so I had to stop by.

    Blessings and love,
    Debbie

      I imagine that was a very cleansing process, Debbie! We’d all do well to follow your example and periodically do a spiritual house cleaning like we do a physical one. Hope you’re well and still having fun loving on those kids!

    What a lovely idea. It reminds me of a very old booklet, My Heart Christ’s Home, that discussed the same thing – so vital.

    Thanks for a lovely visit via Spiritual Sunday. Have a blessed and sweet Sunday

    Kaye
