God is holy and cannot come into the presence of sin. Sin isn't a popular word these days. But Paul writes in Romans 3:23:
"For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."
That means you and me. Jesus came to earth and led a perfectly righteous life. He never sinned. His death and resurrection enables me to receive His life in me so I can come before the Father. I can have peace with God. I am free from sin and death.
Day by day, I'm learning to abide in His presence.
Day by day, He changes my heart's desires.
Day by day, He draws me closer to Him as I read His Word.
As I count my every day blessings, I'm so thankful for His presence in my life. I get to live my life sharing His love with others.
