“When I pondered to understand this, it was troublesome in my sight until I came into the sanctuary of God; then I perceived their end” (Psalm 73:16-17).
A sanctuary offers what a theater, coliseum, auditorium, or civic center cannot. Living as salt and light isn’t all spice and bright lights. Seeking to glorify the Father in a world hostile to the things of God is spiritually, emotionally, and physically draining; creating confusion and conflict. What we need in order to recover, recharge, regroup, and refocus isn’t another event to be attended, in the hope that we might entertained, but a sanctuary where common minds worshipping a common Savior find refuge, rest, and renewal.
