..."whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe"
Proverbs 29: 25
What does it mean to be safe? Are you standing on a "base"?
SAFE: securing from harm, not exposing to danger.
BASE: the foundation, the support, that which is set.
In our world, it is difficult to find a "base" to where we can stand to be secure from harm. There is only ONE base. Jesus Christ. In baseball, when a player is standing on the base, they can not get out. No matter what happens, as long as they are standing on the base, they are protected and safe. As soon as we leave the base.. even just an inch, we are vulnerable to getting tagged out by the opposing team.
When we find ourselves "off-base" from the sure foundation or "base" of Jesus Christ in our lives, we are vulnerable to the adversary. Even if we think we are doing what is right, if our focus is not on the Savior than we can be in danger.
