What does it mean for Jesus to make His home in our hearts? I hope it means He is comfortable there, happy. It’s not a place He’s passing through, but His permanent residence. He takes care of it. It’s a place He invests in, constantly making improvements. He decorates with all of His favorite things—beauty, joy, peace. We have good conversations here; we know one another intimately; we share everything.

What a lovely idea to imagine that wherever we go, we take Him with us in our hearts. He is there to stay, steady and secure, no matter what. We are never alone.

If you are a Christian, never doubt that Jesus lives in your heart. You are very special to Him. He chose you; your heart is where He wants to be. It is His sanctuary.

“Christ will make His home in your hearts as you trust in Him.”

Ephesians 3:16-17 (NIV) / I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love.
