The Christian’s Refuge   1 comment

Ps. 32, 7

Man’s conscious weakness and a sense of possible harm give a sense of insecurity and a need of shelter.

1.  Jesus is the soul’s only refuge from harm.  “Thou,” not another, “art my hiding place.”

From conscience.  An awakened conscience finds no permanent relief till a sense of pardon is realized.  “Who shall deliver me?”  Christ Jesus; no other one can.

2.  From lust.  He enables us to purify our thoughts and triumph over it.

3.  From Satan.  “As a roaring lion he goeth about seeking whom he may devour.”  Jesus conquered him and can succour us when tempted.

4.  From every ill of life, will bring good out of them all, as we trust Him.  “My grace is sufficient for thee” is His constant answer.

5.  From the wrath of God.  For Jesus’ sake to whom we commit ourselves we are pardoned and welcomed to heaven at last.

Seek refuge in Him for your soul and dwell safely and in happiness forever.
