On Tuesday we had some initial discussions with the Elders of our Churches about re-opening our buildings. There is some planning and preparations we can start, but we are waiting for clearer guidance around congregational numbers and dates. The hope is that we will be back in our buildings in some capacity in July.
This morning, I was reading John 14:23, it says, "Jesus answered and said, “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him"" (The New King James Version). For those who love the older King James language, it says, “We will come unto Him, and make our abode with Him.”. So we can translate this as home, abode or dwelling. The Lord is saying He will come and make His home with us. The sense here is both of abiding and staying, presently and in the future. The sense is also of us abiding and staying in the Lord, presently and in the future. There is no condition of life in which we cannot abide in Jesus. As the believer lovingly obeys Christ’s commandments, he or she will experience a more intimate knowledge and relationship with the Lord.
