Memorable Scripture: No buffers on Holy Ground

Then He said, “Do not draw near this place. Take your sandals off your feet, for the place where you stand is holy ground.” Exodus 3:5

Before I enter someone’s home I wipe my feet. It’s a sign of respect and to prevent the tracking of dirt into the house.
At my daughter’s house, we remove our shoes just inside the front door. Again, it is out of respect and a further prevention of carrying dirt from the outside.
Many Eastern cultures still remove shoes before entering a synagogue, mosque, or temple.

Shoes provide a buffer area between you and the world. It protects your feet from foreign objects that cause pain or health problems.
But God wants no buffer between you and Himself. In His presence, you do not need protection. He is your protection.

Remove anything that stands between you and God. Remove hindrances, barriers, and distractions. Come, stand on holy ground!

One thought on “Memorable Scripture: No buffers on Holy Ground

  1. Your thoughts made me think of the three Hebrew boys that stood in the fiery furnus Untouched buy the flames or the heat. God is a consuming fire and through Jesus , God’s Son, we too can stand in that all consuming fire. Not only can we walk on water but we can control the storm. WOW . HALLELUJAH. what an awesome God we serve. And He chose us!
