Heaven Came Down
For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me.John 6:38
Last Sunday in Worship service we sang a song title Heaven Came Down, and the words that got my attention were; “Heaven came down and glory filled my soul. When at the cross the Savior made me whole, my sins were washed away, my night was turned to day.” This song touched my heart thinking what Jesus has done for us.
Glory fills our soul through the Holy Spirit who lives in us, bringing us love, peace, and joy from Christ in Heaven. Glory fills our soul as we pray, read the Word, and worship; doing all in the spirit. Over time as we become more Christ-like with more love in our hearts, the more we experience glory in our soul. We can never experience God’s glory in our soul from the world it only comes from God, and continually fills our soul.
And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:7) The peace from God is not found in the world because this peace from God is continuous in our soul and it is wrapped in God’s perfect love. The only true security and comfort in this world comes from the Lord through our faith. The more faith we have, the more glory fills our soul.
It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. (Galatians 5:1) The Lord continually feeds our soul with his love, peace, and joy; and so we are secure and content. There is no freedom on earth that exists like the freedom from our Lord, because we are free from the world. We live absent of Satan’s fear and live in God’s love, knowing Heaven is our home and we are just temporary ambassadors for Christ in this broken world.
Today realize that Christ has made it possible for Heaven to come down and fill our soul with God’s glory. Live with love, peace, and joy from Heaven and reflect it to others; a love, peace, and joy that is not based on the world but only comes from down from Heaven.
Prayer: Lord thank you for bringing Heaven into my soul. Guide me to always be in the Spirit reflecting Heaven to others. Keep Satan away as he tries to pull heaven from my soul. Help me to remember your power through the Spirit will always overcome Satan. In Jesus’ name, Amen
