How awesome is this place!

Genesis 28:17 - Jacob was afraid and said, "How awesome is this place!  This is none other then the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven.  This passage - Genesis 28:10-17 - gives the account of Jacob's dream at Bethel in which he sees angels ascending and descending a ladder to heaven.  It is a passage that is about connecting to, and with, God, something that we all need to do.  It also reminds us that such connection is possible - or a better word might be 'available'. 

There are places which especially remind us of God, and that's great - we should enjoy them.  But we should never forget that God is there for us in the unexpected place where we most need to find God.  HOW AWESOME IS THIS PLACE - THIS IS NONE OTHER THAN THE HOUSE OF GOD!
