Today I was commenting on a reply that was written on my on blog today.

I was commenting how Paul did works out of knowing who he was and how God defined him. He wasn’t doing to be but being and the doing flowed naturally out of relationship.  I was typing the word “resting” as in moving from a place of resting in God’s ….

And the spell check replaced “resting” with “residence.”  That hit me and totally floored me. I sat there and contemplated that.


The first definition I Google’d was so good.  “The official house of a government official” implies a place authority. We have a place of residence. We are a residence. We hold within our meat sacks of humanity the very image of Christ. You are a carrier of the DNA of God!


Resting = Residence

About Ben Kilen

I am a average guy father of 4. I don't claim any super powers or amazing talents. I do have a double jointed thumb and I have always hoped it would bring me wealth and fame but so far it hasn't. I am an eclectic music lover as long and by music current day main stream rap does not qualify as music. Anything that has one to two sentences hammered over and over with no melody or excessive auto tune does not qualify.
