In the consecration, in the setting apart in the gathering of your people set apart for worship, sanctuary, wherever we gather to be sure; but in the space formed for this purpose saved, waiting for the congregation ready for two or more, to gather in his name, or for when one, in need of your presence humbly seeks your face sacred, holy ground, by the consecration or by the gathering of believers sanctuary.
March 22, 2009 based on comment posted to “Come Thirsty”, “I like this poem a lot. Still, there's a sense in which the church building is only sacred ground if the Church meets there. When we meet with his people, whether in a home or a public place or a business or a church building, it becomes the sanctuary, the place of the presence of God.” ---- Come Thirsty
Oh, come thirsty, come into the sanctuary into the presence of God, a special place onto sacred ground be filled, be refreshed to find the face of Christ in our neighbors, in the words of song, in the message in the scripture the telling of the good news
Oh, come thirsty, come to the well to the living waters of salvation to be made new, in his image to drink your fill, to run this race with renewed strength with faith as if a mustard seed but able to move a mountain stepping out of the boat onto water
Oh, come thirsty, to the Lord’s house feeling his grace, all around you entering into to worship, real worship listening for that still small voice of God his message, his call for your life enter into his courts, fall at his altar believe in his plan for you, from before your birth plans to enrich you, and to bring your home
