“BE A SANCTUARY!”

Exodus 25:8 (ESV)

“And let them make ME a sanctuary, that I may dwell in their midst.”

2 Corinthians 6:16 (ESV)

“What agreement has the temple of GOD with idols? For WE ARE THE TEMPLE OF THE LIVING GOD; as GOD said,

“I will make MY dwelling among them and walk among them,
and I will be their GOD,
and they shall be MY people.”



Last night as I prepared for sleep this chorus entered my mind and would not leave!

Verse 1
Lord prepare me to “BE A SANCTUARY”
Pure and holy, tried and true
With thanksgiving, I’ll be a living
Sanctuary for You
Verse 2
Lord prepare me to be testimony
Sweet and simple, tried true
With thanksgiving, I’ll be a living
Testimony for You
Verse 3
Lord prepare me to be a sacrifice
Pure and holy, tried and true
With thanksgiving, I’ll be a living
Sacrifice for You


How often do I “feel the need” to do something for my LORD, and HE simply wants me to “BE A SANCTUARY” to dwell within! One dictionary defines SANCTUARY as “a consecrated or sacred place”. We have forgiveness because of the SACRIFICE of JESUS, yet I sometimes want to be planning what “I can do” for JESUS rather than simply spending time fellowshipping with HIM!
