Where are you staying?

"Where are you staying?"
John 1:38

Reading
John 1:35-42

We encounter a very interesting yet a difficult question today. When Jesus asked his disciples "what do you seek?" or what you are looking for? disciples asked another question about his whereabouts. It becomes more interesting when we see his disciples followed him to his place, although no particular location is mentioned in the narration. They came, they saw, they stayed (John 1:39).

However, we can tend to answer this question in a more mystical way by referring to the in-dwelling (antaryami) presence of God (John 15). But what does it really mean to answer this question, where is he staying? What is the site of God's presence today? Where can we find God today? more carefully, Where is he residing?
