Exhortation: Sacred Space

August 5th, Exhortation

We are this morning in a sacred space. This is a place where holy things happen. But don’t confuse holiness with neat and tidy. We are not neat and tidy people. We are rather messy at times. In fact, this is why we are here this morning. Our hearts are prone to wander from the wisdom of God and his forgiveness, so He brings us together to clean us up a bit, and re-orient our hearts to purity and wisdom.

Worship is holiness; a holiness that conflicts with the messiness of our lives. This is why worship has a mediator. The mediator is the Holy Spirit who draws us into the heavenly places. There, our hearts are made clean. Our orientation is transformed, and wisdom is given from above. There, Jesus forgives and makes all things new. We are in holy space today, so let us then hear the call of God who is the very definition of holiness.

Prayer: Holy, Holy, Holy. Heaven and earth are full of your glory. Cleanse our hearts and instruct us to pursue the One who is Wisdom made flesh, even Jesus Christ. Amen.

    my office does not look like a worship space– very messy! Pro 14:4 Where no oxen are, the crib is clean: but much increase is by the strength of the ox.
