"Come and see"
Who doesn't want to live in safety and peace? We find our sanctuary as we learn that we live in God.
When the disciples Simon and Andrew were first introduced to Christ Jesus, they asked the Master, "Where dwellest thou?" I have always liked the answer he gave them: "Come and see." Continually traveling from town to town, Jesus had no fixed earthly home that Simon and Andrew could "come and see." It seems to me that his words suggest a challenge to these early followers to discover for themselves that Jesus' habitual dwelling was in his consciousness of God's care, the kingdom of heaven within him.
This invitation to visit Jesus' spiritual home is still extended to all who desire to follow him. Each one of us is free to place his or her feet on the straight and narrow path that leads to the "house not made with hands," as Paul describes the Christly consciousness in a letter to the Corinthians. This "place" where Jesus lived includes an abiding awareness of God's presence and of God's constant love for the man of His, Spirit's, creating.
