Run Into Jesus

Tabenacle frontLet’s take another run at the phrase in Christ. Last time I said, “One process kills self, while another simply keeps self under control. Truth is, both are hard!” What do you do when it gets hard to kill self? Run into Christ…literally.
Jesus became flesh or tabernacled (John 1:14). This is a direct reference to the time when God lived in a tent (Exodus 40:34). The entire Tabernacle is a picture of who Jesus is and what He did for us.
This Tabernacle is also a picture of a stronghold that we can run into when life gets tough. In your mind, picture yourself literally running into the tabernacle much like the one pictured here. As you run inside, sit down and be surrounded by Jesus. He is the tent, which gets you out of life’s storms, the heat of life’s battle and the cold indifference of this world. He brings light to your decisions (lampstand), fulfillment to life’s uncertainties (showbread/Bread of Life), and the presence of power when you’re weak (Incense altar and Ark).
Don’t run into the strongholds within your mind thinking they will make you safe. They can’t. Instead, tear them down (2 Cor. 10:4) and run into Jesus, the tent. Find peace and comfort by literally being in Christ within the walls of your mind. He’s the only one who can keep you perfectly safe despite what rages on around you.
