Everyone needs a place of refuge at times. A place to go when we’re hurting. A place to go in with made a mistake.
In the Old Testament, in the book of Deuteronomy, God told Moses to establish some cities of refuge in Israel. These cities of refuge would be a place of safety for people.
At times, we all need a place or a person where we can find refuge. when you’re down hurting or discouraged, Jesus is our refuge. And, Jesus wants his church to be a place of refuge. The church should be a place where anyone can find grace forgiveness and refuge at any time in their life.
Maybe God wants you to be a person of refuge for someone today. Maybe someone is hurting,… Someone is discouraged… Maybe God wants you to encourage them during a difficult time.
Today, if you’re hurting or discouraged Jesus is a place of refuge. Today if we know someone who is hurting Jesus wants us to be a person of refuge for someone who is down.
