If you asked an Israelite back in Moses’ day, Where is God’s dwelling place, they would have answered, the tabernacle. In Solomon’s day, they would have answered, the temple in Jerusalem.
But where is his dwelling place today?
It is not in a temple made by human hands.
On the day of Pentecost he dedicated a new temple, and he filled it with his glory by the giving of the Holy Spirit. Jesus’ death on the cross made this reality possible. He cleansed us once and for all so that He could take up residence in our hearts.
So where does God live today? In you and me. We are the temple of God. As Paul wrote, God’s Spirit live in us.
