Holy Ground

Where the Lord is, is holy.

Today I’m reminded of an old Pentecostal worship song with these verses, “We’re standing on holy ground, We’re standing on holy ground; for where the Lord is’ is holy.” If you really do believe that Jesus rose from the dead, and that you have been given the Holy Spirit; everywhere you stand is holy ground. You’re now to be the “burning bush” that brings man’s attention to the Lord.

That makes me think about smoke, sparks and fire. Smoke are words without deeds. Sparks are untrustworthy, but fire gets man’s attention. Fire got Moses’ attention, then he heard the voice of God, a voice promising deliverance. (Exodus 3) 

Jesus came to set “the prisoner free.” (Isaiah 61:1; Luke 4:18) He does it with “the truth, the word of God.” (John 8:32; 17:17) We get to be the burning bush witnessing to the Truth, who is Christ, (John 14:6) the One who set us free.

The mature believer is recognized by deeds and not smoke alone, nor are they carried about by every wind of doctrine”, (Ephesians 4:124) but are steadfast witnesses to their Savior and Lord Jesus, the Son of God.

“As for you also, because of the blood of My covenant with you,
I have set your prisoners free from the cistern in which there is no water.” (Zechariah 9:11) We get to drink from living water!

Bet you never thought of yourself as a burning bush before.
