Sanctuary

Dale Cresap's picture

Have you ever heard of my house referred to as a sanctuary? Yet the same term applies to a safe place for birds or other wildlife, or a place for refugees to be safe. Do you think of this connection when you come into my house? My house is meant for prayer and worship, but it is first of all a safe place for my children. Don’t you think of your house the same way? How much more will your Father in heaven provide a place of refuge for his own? I hold you in the palm of my hand and nothing shall harm you. No evil or danger is allowed in my presence, but I invite you to come to me there and as you abide in me you are in a place of perfect safety.
