Zechariah 2:10 -- On God as our Neighbor

"Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the Lord."
Zechariah 2:10

The idea of God coming to live with us is amazingly cool.  Can you imagine being able to go over to his house and hang out with him in person?  We have so many ways to communicate with him now, and we have churches and temples, but I really don't think any of that can compare to the experience of being able to be in his presence and talk to him face to face.  That's part of what we work our whole lives for... the ability to return to his presence.
Today, let's make this a goal.  To be worthy of being able to live in the same community with God.  To have him be that big a part of our lives.  And until then, let's do everything we can do to move closer to that ideal with what we have now.  Let's talk to him in prayer, learn more of him through the scriptures, and become  better and purer than we are, so that when we do see him, we aren't ashamed or fearful, but just full of joy and peace.
