Outside the camp?

Posted by appolus on April 29, 2013

Heb 13:13-14 Therefore let us go forth to Him outside the camp, bearing His reproach. For here we have no continuing city, but we seek one to come.
Jesus is to be found outside the camp, outside the walls, outside the gates. We are told to go to where He is. In those days, the walls represented security and belonging. To be outside the camp was to be outside of fellowship with the rest of society and to be in a dangerous place. Yet, Jesus was to be found in a place called Golgotha, outside of the gates, but within view of the city so that all could see. To leave the security of the walls behind us, we must be willing to find all of our security and belonging in Jesus. If any part of our heart belongs to the city, we will be tempted to look back with longing as judgment begins to pour down upon it, just as Lots wife looked back. Abraham also left his place of belonging, his homeland, and never looked back. It is an eternal city that we seek and we have been called to be sojourners and pilgrims in this voyage of life. Jesus alone is our anchor and only in Him can be found our place of refuge, where He is, is the harbour of our souls

    Wow, bro, Blaine and I were just saying this yesterday.
    We must be outside the camp and not just at the cross…but on the cross.
    It seems like the worst place to be, but in reality IT IS the truly liberating place to be.

    May the Lord open our eyes, our hearts and see this TRUTH, brother!
    In Jesus,
    Sister Leslie

    In the shadow of Jerusalem
    My Christ He died today
    For you and I, He died alone
    On the rugged cross He’d stay

    He did not die within the walls
    He died outside the gate
    He died that you and I may live
    To make the crooked path straight

    He did not die a rich mans death
    On Him our sins were cast
    A thief on either side of Him
    He gave up the Ghost at last

    Now into the grave they put our Lord
    Where all dead men are placed
    Yet this was the mighty Son of God
    Whom God Himself would raise

    And on the third day He arose
    And death had lost its sting
    The grave had lost its power
    Yet the earth had gained its King

    All glory to the King of Kings
    All hail Emmanuel
    No power on earth could hold Him down
    Not even the power of hell

    The Lord our God is coming soon
    He is coming for His own
    And men from every tribe on earth
    Shall gather round His throne

    Holy, Holy, Holy Lord
    Can you hear the angels sing?
    All glory to the risen Lamb
    All glory to the King
