“We may ignore, but we can nowhere evade the presence of God. The world is crowded with Him. He walks everywhere incognito.” ~C.S. Lewis
God the Father is OVER US
God has said, “never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.
God the father is over us FOR PROVISION
Jesus was WITH US
The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him IMMANUEL (which means “God with us”).
Jesus was with us FOR SACRIFICE.
The Holy Spirit is IN US
And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever… He lives with you and will be in you.
The Holy Spirit is in us FOR EMPOWERMENT.
God the Father is over us for provision
God the Son is with us for sacrifice
God the Spirit is in us for empowerment
