I love the temple where you live, and where your glory shines (Psalm 26:8, CEV).

As we count down to Christmas Day, this week’s I Love the Psalms theme is love.

Where is God’s temple? The answer is where God lives. All too often we want to keep God at a safe distance. Heaven seems like a logical place for God to dwell. But guess what? God is not content to stay there. He wants to live with us.

That’s why Jesus came into the world. He came to live with us. Paul reminds us of this truth with these words, Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? (1 Corinthians 3:16, NIV).

Today let God’s glory shine from your life.

Response: LORD God, thank you for sending Jesus to be born among us. Thank you for coming to live in my heart. I make room for you. Amen.

Your Turn: How can you let Jesus shine from the temple of your heart on this the eve of his birth?
