During the day that played out before me, I kept thinking of how with practice we could become conscious of the presence of God continuously throughout the day. By keeping my eyes open and my ears tuned, I can become more acutely aware of God being by my side.
Later the same day, our small group gathered to continue to discuss chapter one of Ephesians. Our group discussion leader reminded us of something which set off the bells and whistles~we are repeatedly told we are "In Christ" in the first chapter of Paul's book.
Look over in Paul's letter to Corinthians~
Therefore, if anyone is IN CHRIST,
he is a new creation, the old has gone,
the new has come.
II Corinthians 5:17
We are reminded over and over that we are IN CHRIST. One of the group members beautifully explained it by comparing it to being in the womb. You are warm, provided for, protected, and always present with the mother. So it is when we proclaim Christ as our Lord, we are In Him. If Christ is part of the Trinity Godhead, it stands to reason, we are constantly in His presence by being In Christ.
OH~What a beautiful and reassuring thought. We are constantly in God's presence by being in Christ. No need to practice~just remember who you are.
And you were also included in Christ
when you heard the Word of truth.
you were marked in Him with a seal,
the promised Holy Spirit
