  1. 1. Using the song “Sanctuary” to petition the Lord and giving our lives to be His dwelling place. 1 Cor. 6:19 Prepared To Be a Sanctuary
  2. 2. Introduction <ul><li>Think about the Bible’s picture of the temple sanctuary: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It was a place for God’s dwelling place.

  4. 4. Lord, Prepare me <ul><li>To be a sanctuary. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>We want the Lord to dwell in us that we may have fellowship with Him. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Therefore we humbly ask Him to prepare our lives that He may dwell in us. </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Lord, Prepare me <ul><li>To be pure and holy. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>We want our bodies to be a perfect dwelling place for our Almighty God. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Therefore we humbly ask Him to make us pure and holy (for we cannot of ourselves). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>We want Him to lead us on from temptation. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>To fill our hearts with His Spirit. 1 Cor. 6:19 </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Take our sins away. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Can he live in anything less? </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Lord, Prepare me <ul><li>To be tried and true. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>We want our bodies to be a reliable dwelling place for our Lord. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>So, we make supplication that the Lord test our faith that we may be found “tried and true” before Him. </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. With Thanksgiving <ul><li>We are full of thanksgiving because: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>He came to save us. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>He knows our weaknesses. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>He gives us strength with His own hand. </li></ul></ul>
