Summary: A person whom we love we always keep that person in our heart. Some times it a person ( your loved one ) Some times it a product (when you completely give your conversation to a products that you wish) Some tines it is a work ( example house, building Or position )

We give importance to what we love and without our knowledge we invite its presence our lives.

Many of us give importance to their love

It may be a product, or power.

-- we are giving importance to things of this word . Which us perishable.

We give prominent place? to your wish, until it gets done or your mind occupied with

- work, - product, or power.

Example : construction of a new house or a marriage or debtor. Or a new desire for a different power.

But God wants us that we should give importance to the permanent things.

-- he expects we should live in truth

-- he expects we should live for truth

-- he expects we should live in holy life

-- he expects we should live for permanent .

--For this life we need Gods presence

1. A. We are carrying Gods presence with us .

We are the temple of God and God’s Spirit lives in us

As part of Christ’s body, we carry God’s presence with and in us. Some people and religious doctrines try to diminish this Christian responsibility because they believe that it limits or obscures God’s holiness and ultimately His sovereignty by filling imperfect people or because the thought that humans carry God’s presence may imply universalism – people are gods because they are carrying part of God with them. These unbiblical positions are extreme and speculative.

--However, the bible is clear that the Holy Spirit, dwells in us and thus God’s presence, is carried by each believer.

1 Corinthians 3:16 KJV

[16] Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

God wants to live in you, you and are created as vessel

--in the Lord,

-- for the Lord,

-- and created to live by the Lord

1 Corinthians 3:17 KJV

[17] If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

As God’s temple, what does scripture say about being carrier of God’s presence.

God’s power not released in a things or religion but through His presence.

Illustrations:

-- when the people of Israel came out of the bondage.

In these passages the ark serves as a symbol the presence of God. The ark is spoken of as the throne of God (I Sam 4:4; II Sam 6:2; cf. Jer 3:16).

A. We should fear to God and holiness we should lead our lives .

1. Guard ur words, and mouth.

2. Guard ur behaviour.

3. Guard ur spiritual life.

3. Why ark

-- to teach us only God is permanent not works of men

2 A. We have more power and strength when there is a gods presence .

2 Corinthians 4:7-9 The world may press us hard, but God’s strength and presence will not allow us to be crushed.

2 Corinthians 4:7-9 KJV

[7] But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. [8] We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; [9] Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;

Because gods presence is in us. That mean God is with us.
