On Holy Ground

Exodus 3:5
God said to Moses in his encounter with the burning bush.
'Come no nearer' he said. Take off your shoes, for the place on which you stand is holy ground.
Entering into the space of the church, setting our feet upon holy ground, entering into the sacred presence of our God, let us not wander our minds, let loose our lips in useless clatter. Let us be drawn into the silence of our hearts to grow in awareness of the sacredness of this holy place. Let us take off our pride and masks. Before God, our hearts' thoughts are laid bare. And with humility, reverence and devotion, bow down to seek the Lord, receiving Him more fully into our hearts and lives. That with each time, we give a little more of ourselves to Him, allowing Him to transform us, to cleanse us, shape us, make whole our brokenness. Sincerely, we enter into the holy ground of our heart, there, where God is ever present, we love and adore Him.
