Jesus isn’t limited to religious ceremonies, pious people or holy places. We can have access to the risen Jesus anytime and anyplace.
The risen Jesus is not just here or there. He’s everywhere! The omnipresent Jesus is always around, even when we ignore Him. Human unawareness has no impact on the omnipresence of the living Jesus.
The omnipresent Jesus isn’t restricted to any place or time. You can’t keep Him locked up in church buildings or in the first century.
Anytime or anywhere, the living Jesus can be sensed by a human heart. If we’re unaware of His presence, He’s not hiding. We are.
When Christianity overlooks the omnipresence of the risen Jesus, it replaces Him with organized religion. Organized religion tends to opt out on the omnipresent Jesus and to substitute planned and orchestrated church services.
The religious doctrine of omnipresence should never be substituted for our continually experiencing the omnipresent Jesus. Since the living Jesus is omnipresent, we can interact with Him directly without going through religious places or ceremonies.
I love meeting people who belong to those unified in God’s Spirit. Because of the omnipresence of Jesus, we experience immediate heart-connection. The Bible tells Christians “to keep the unity of the Spirit.” If we stay united with the Spirit (the omnipresence of Jesus), we’ll be united with each other.
