In His Sight - Part I
Main Course: On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you (John 14:20; cf. 15:4).
“I am in Him and He is in me” and from where He is everything is right, pure and holy. And if I am in Him, all my ways should be the same which means when there is an action, thought, or step out of line of where I am (in heaven dwelling with Him), it is wrong – sin. Although we are kings and priests who reside on the earth, from where God is in heaven on the throne, we are wrong when use our power or authority to make decisions that will benefit our own fleshly desires (I Pet. 2:9-10; Rev. 1:6). King David knew this better than anyone and expressed it in Psalm 51, particularly in verse 4 (…and done this evil in thy sight). He understood that regardless of his kingship on earth, God was still ruler over all and had the right to judge and determine what is right and wrong. He was accountable to God for his actions just as Adam was in the beginning in the Garden of Eden. After King David realized this truth, he was able to ask God to clean his heart and renew a right spirit within him (vs. 10). You see, what may seem right in our own eyes, from God’s perspective it is wrong because of where he is, seated above on the throne (above a sinful world (cont'd).
