In the Old Testament, wherever the Ark of the Covenant resided, that’s where you find God. Thus, the Ark of the Covenant represented the presence, power and anointing of God. If the Ark of the Covenant was in your presence, you knew that blessings were there, love was there, peace was there, but also was judgment. The Ark of the Covenant was so important to Israel that King David got a man killed trying to move the ark back to Jerusalem the wrong way, or the way David thought it should have been moved. King David understood how important it was to have God in his presence; he understood how important it was to have God back in the city and the community. Thus it should be just as important to every believer to have God back in our homes, communities, schools and cities. When God is ushered into a place the whole atmosphere changes; husbands and wives aren’t divorcing when God is in the house; gang banging stops in our schools when God is in the building; educators stop taking advantage of our children sexually when God is in the school system. When God is in the city we learn how to love one another and be at peace with one another regardless of the color of our skin, or our economic background. Therefore saints of God, real change will come when we as Christians take God on our jobs, to our communities and certainly to our homes. The school system will change when our kids begin to take God back into their local school; and the truth is if we don’t do it as ambassadors for Christ, no one else will. It all begins with a lifestyle that stands out, you won’t have to preach a sermon, wear a robe with a clergy collar, and you won’t even have to wear a diamond encrusted cross around your neck. However, you will have to do what (Matt 5:16) says “Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good work and glorify your Father which is in heaven”. The world just needs to see somebody living for God, because when they see God they will begin to ask questions; that bring an opportunity for you to share your faith.
God Bless You!
