Finding Eternal Refuge in the Grace of Jesus Christ

Numbers 35:25 ...and the congregation shall restore him to the city of his refuge, whither he was fled: and he shall abide in it unto the death of the high priest...

The scriptures teach that he who is guilty of breaking even one of God’s commandments is guilty of them all (see James 2:10). If we’re guilty of them all, and the avenger of blood is after our soul, where shall we go? Allow me to tell you about a city of refuge named GRACE! The one who built this city is Jesus Christ! When the avenger of blood would have prevailed over our wicked, guilty soul to cause us to pay for those crimes which we had committed, Jesus stood between us and him, taking the death blow on our behalf, and shedding His own blood to redeem mankind! He took the very wrath of God on the cross, so as to give us GRACE!

Jesus is not only the founder of GRACE, but He’s the door to GRACE. If you want to benefit from GRACE, you must come through Christ! All who are outside GRACE are yet under the wrath of Almighty God. Run to His refuge, oh sinner, lest it become too late! If you will run from your sins into the arms of Christ, believing in His death, burial, and resurrection, and seeking forgiveness and power over your sins as well as shelter from the condemnation of your sins, Christ will save you, both immediately and permanently!

Not only is Christ the founder of this city of refuge called GRACE, and not only is He the door, but He’s also the High Priest! As long as He shall live, you shall abide in this city of refuge! Oh my soul, give glory to God, for He has spared me from the wrath which is to come! Let us thank Him today for His amazing, wonderful, matchless GRACE, for He our High Priest shall never die!

1 Co 15:10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.
