“The building up of Zion is a cause that has interested
the people of God in every age; it is a theme upon which
prophets, priests and kings have dwelt with peculiar delight;
they have looked forward with joyful anticipation to the
day in which we live; and fired with heavenly and joyful
anticipations they have sung and written and prophesied of
this our day."
Already Im missing sitting out there in the backyard at the patio table...
I studied best out there in the warm sun.
Its a yard full of peace and warmth..in the summer.
Sunday School lessons seemed to come easier there.
Next weeks Sunday School lesson is on Zion.
I wish that meant that I'd be teaching a lesson about Zion National Park. That would be a cinch!!
Instead it means that I'll have to teach a lesson on something that means many things to many people.
Thus far I have seen that Zion means...
....a state of mind.
....a dwelling place where God resides.
.....a pure heart.
....a journey and a destination.
....having one heart and one mind.
(and Zion is NOT in my back yard this day)
