Odds and Sods Vol 2 Issue 24

  • The newsletter will be available on Wednesday.
  • Having difficulties with my other site, JonClaytonWrites.com.
  • I am using the Divi theme from Elegant Themes with a child theme from a 3rd party.
  • I liked it because it had a stunning look.
  • But, it had become difficult to manage on the admin side.
  • Finally had enough and switched to the Extra theme (Divi for blogs). That has made the situation better.
  • Extra is the same theme I use on this site.
  • Still, there is much to do on both sites.
  • God is good! Live a salty life!
  • See you in next week!

What If We Actually Believed This?

In Him you also trusted, after you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, to the praise of His glory. (Ephesians 1:13-14, NKJV)

Odds and Sods Vol 2 Issue 24God lives in us as believers. We all know this.

But do we believe it? The only way I can know if I believe something is if I live it out.

How incredible it is that God Himself would live in us?

Of this salvation the prophets have inquired and searched carefully, who prophesied of the grace that would come to you, searching what, or what manner of time, the Spirit of Christ who was in them was indicating when He testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ and the glories that would follow. To them, it was revealed that not to themselves, but to us they were ministering the things which now have been reported to you through those who have preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven—things which angels desire to look into. (1 Peter 1:10-12) (Emphasis added)

Angels desire to look into. That is an amazing statement from Scripture!

The angels did not know that God would live within us. We too should be awestruck by having the presence of God in us!

What if we actually believed this?

“These who have turned the world upside down have come here too.” (Acts 17:6)

The same thing would happen again.


Father God, thank You for the salvation we have through Jesus Christ. Help us to comprehend the incredible gift of Your presence in us. Give us wisdom into what that means in our lives right here and now. Be our strength to live it out.  In Jesus name, Amen.
