Ps 48:2-3
1 Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised in the city of our God,
in the mountain of his holiness.
2 Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion,
on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.
3 God is known in her palaces for a refuge.

Gal 3:26-29
26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put
on Christ.
28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free,
there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs
according to the promise.

LIGHT from the WORD.

One of the names for Jerusalem is "City of God."
And another is "City of Peace."
It's rather ironical that this place has had so little peace in the
history of the world.

When Solomon built the temple there, God promised to "dwell"
among the people.

Today, the church is like Jerusalem!
The Great God, Creator and Redeemer is PRESENT there!
His praise rings through the church as the saints sing and glorify
His Name!
And there, God protects His people from the "hostage takers"
of the world.

John 16:33
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might
have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation:
but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.


The church is a "city of refuge," a moral oasis in a world
seething in immorality!
It is the place where God's love abounds in His people.
A place where quiet moments of reflection soothe the soul.
A place where we prepare the heart to face the difficulties of
the world.
A place for the teaching of truth, joy, hope and love.

AND, the church is where misfits perfectly fit it!

Have YOU surrendered to Christ and been ADOPTED into
His family?

Are you LIVING in a world of tribulation, but you know
PEACE because of His PRESENCE?

Love ya!
