God's home

3 things the TARDIS teaches us about being God’s home.  

1. The TARDIS has free will. God has given us freedom and trusts us.  When Jesus first came down, God asked Mary to carry him, literally. He put his complete faith in an ordinary, fragile human girl. God asks the same of us. Carry me, he says, to the dark places, to the weary ones, to the lonely and sad, to the sick and in prison. I am in you so let me shine out from you.

2. When the Doctor left his planet, Gallifrey,  he chose an old, decommissioned, unreliable, obsolete Mark 1 TARDIS. Do I feel a bit that way? Unreliable, past my best, a bit broken? The Doctor chose his TARDIS and he loves it. God has chosen you. And me. He loves us so much. He wouldn’t have us any other way. And he is fixing us up, repairing us, coaxing us along.

3. It’s bigger on the inside. And so are we! We have the Holy Spirit, God Almighty, creator of the universe living inside us, empowering us with his love, his joy, his wisdom, his grace. So rejoice in that when you feel small and weak!
