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
