Sanctuary: Not Alone

Sanctuary–

1 : a place (as a church or a temple) for worship

2 : a place of refuge and protection

Meditating on the beauty He’s created and the power of His words…


John 8:29 (NASB)

And He who sent Me is with Me; He has not left Me alone, for I always do the things that are pleasing to Him.”


What’s your sanctuary this week? What thought, verse, etc. are you meditating on?

  1. i love the definition of sanctuary. Our homes, our places of worship, so many places can be our sanctuary. And of course our Savior.

  2. 2 Timothy 2:13 if we are faithless, he remains faithful, for he cannot disown himself.

    • I love that verse and the verses before it. Powerful truth! I actually preached it again just last week. He will not go against his own interests and He fulfills His promises as we trust Him. Thanks Ed.

  3. I did a formal study of James 1:21 yesterday. Interestingly, two of the words translated from the KJV; superfluity and engrafted, are only used once each in the entire Bible and both of them in this verse…

    Also a quick study of James 1:1 is fascinating because the direct announcement that he was writing directly to the “lost tribes” when he calls them the “12 tribes,” and the “scattered among the nations” translates as “gentile countries.”

    And the overall of James, only Jesus Christ is mentioned once at the beginning of chapter 2. I don’t think it probably means anything, but it is just an observation I hadn’t caught before.

    In addition to overall of James, he defends a common sense approach to the Old Testament Law and how it applies in the New Covenant. Again, just my observation and opinion….

    That’s what you get for asking!

    • No apologies! That’s good stuff. :) thanks Floyd.

  4. My strong desire for life: that same verse. To always do what is pleasing to Him. I ain’t perfect, but I know that’s what truly counts, from here to eternity.

  5. Know therefore that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God, who keeps His covenant and His lovingkindness to a thousandth generation with those who love Him and keep His commandments; (Deuteronomy 7:9)
