Do you ever feel as though your faith has taken one beating too many? Do you ever feel as though even just one more knock might be enough to leave you lying in pieces? In our reading from 2 Corinthians (2 Cor 4:13–5:5) this morning, St. Paul encourages us to remember the hope and confidence we have through the gift of the Holy Spirit. No longer are we stuck in this earthly tent because we have a special dwelling place that is given to us by God: an eternal house in heaven not built by earthly hands.
If home is where the heart is, then there can be no better place for our hearts to find themselves than in the love of God. If you don't believe Paul, why not check out what the psalmist has to say:
You who live in the shelter of the Most High,
In John 15, Jesus encouraged us to abide in his love. Why? Because he knew that only when we live in the love of God can we fully be the people God has called us to be.
