God created Adam with the intent of living in and through him. When he fashioned Eve from Adam’s rib, she instantly had God in her too. God’s original plan for every person born after Adam and Eve was that he would live in and through them. Once Adam sinned, though, God would not live in anyone. Because he is holy, he will not coexist with sin, and we are all born sinners. When Jesus Christ came, he “restarted” the human race and made it possible for God to come live in people again.
Did you know Jesus Christ was called the last Adam when he came to this earth? First Corinthians 15:45 says, “So also it is written, ‘The first man, Adam, became a living soul.’ The last Adam became a life-giving spirit”. Jesus was called the last Adam because he came to restart the human race.
You were included in this “restart” when Jesus came to live in you and through you just as he did in Adam and Eve!
