A few years back I made this little deal with God, that I would love whoever He brought to our house and He would be the Hound of Heaven to every soul that stepped on our property. It may sound silly, making deals with God, but He seems to tolerate my personality and sense of humor. I believe in a BIG God, so I ask Him for big things!
I want every soul I touch, to belong to God’s Kingdom.
Each time someone gets out of their car and steps on our lawn I say, “They’re on holy ground now, do Your thing!” Our house holy ground? Why yes it is, and your’s is too! We are temples or containers of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19) because Jesus promised that streams of life-giving water would pour out from within anyone who believes in Him (John 7:38). That includes our family, our home.
Whether it’s conscious or not, we believers are all carriers of the Spirit of the Living God. In all that we do, in all that we say – we represent Him as ambassadors! And where He is… is Holy.
So we are Christ’s ambassadors, God making His appeal [‘come to me!’] as it were through us…” 2 Corinthians 5:20
As Christ’s personal representatives, we bring holiness wherever we go! Think of it. I imagine Pig Pen in Charlie Brown or TinkerBell in Peter Pan – their dust and sparkles surrounding anyone who got close. Everyday I want my stream of living water to spill out on those around me.
