God is our Refuge

Pastor Mark's message entitled "The Cities of Refuge" based on Joshua 20:1-9

1. Purpose: refuge to one who inadvertantly (unintentionally) kills someone
2. Provision: given by God (v.1)
3. Power: to save; to secure; sufficient
4. Portion: available to all
5. Picture: Kedesh-- consecrate, holiness, righteousness
Shechem-- shoulder
Hebron-- fellowship; unite, join, companion, association
Bezer-- (fortress) ore of gold or silver
Ramah-- height, exalted
Golan-- (joy) enclosure, circle

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.--Psalm 46:1
God is Gracious. We live and thrive by the grace of God.
