Cities of Refuge - Hebron

The third city of refuge we will look at will be Hebron which means fellowship.

1 John 1:3 says…
That which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. And we are writing these things so that our joy may be complete.

Thanks to Christ’s work on the cross, we have fellowship with God. Without this mediating work, this would have been impossible because God’s justice needed to be satisfied, and it found its satisfaction in Christ our substitute. This verse in 1 John not only speaks of fellowship with God which is primary, but fellowship with each other as a result of our redemption.

When we flee the wrath to come and seek refuge in Christ, we are adopted as God’s children, and as children of the same Father we become brothers and sisters in Christ.

Behold what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called children of God; 1 John 3:1

Praise God for the fellowship we have found in Him.

This is good. So many, unfortunately, are living in the city but still looking over their shoulders. That was me for most of my life. I'm finally learning to feel the comfort of His protection.
