I Know Somebody

Exodus 25:1 thru Exodus 31:18

Over the past few days we have been reading about God's instructions for His dwelling place and how Aaron and his sons were to be clothed as the priests of Israel.

Remember, Moses has been on the mountain for 40 days receiving very detailed descriptions of what the Tabernacle of God was to look like, how it was to be built, and how sacrifices are to be offered and when. 

Something that is very interesting to me is the fact that God spends only one chapter (Genesis 1) of the Bible speaking about Creation; the creation of heaven, earth, day, night, land, sea, plants, animals and man.  Only ONE CHAPTER.

But when it came to the creation of His dwelling place, the place where He would live among His people, 50 chapters of the Bible are dedicated to it. 

This shows how important we are to God.  He put more emphasis on His living among us than on His creation for us. 

God so desires to be a part of your daily life.  He wants to do life with you. 

I am not sure we will ever really get the fact that we, me and you, can have an audience with the Creator of Heaven and Earth.  

Try and get an audience with the Queen of England or the President of the United States and see how far you get.  Not very far unless you are somebody or you know somebody.  

Well, we know Somebody and His name is Jesus and when He died the veil that separated God's people from the Most Holy Place was ripped from top to bottom (Mark 15:38) and now we can come boldly into the throne room of grace and find help in our time of need (Hebrews 4:16).   

We no longer need a temple, we are the temple.

We no longer need a priest, we just need a prayer. 

And all God's peeps said, Amen.

I hope you will meet me back here tomorrow because our reading is about to get very interesting.
