The Temple

God is very interested in the details. When you take a look at the instructions for the tabernacle tent God instructed in Exodus, up to the Temple design God gave David to pass onto Solomon…we see a God who loves precison and excellence.

He called for the best materials. He called for the best craftsmen. He called for everyone to give their all. The level of excellence was not lost in the details….it was amplified.

The result was a place of His presence, a place of worship like no other. It’s no different today for us. God is still interested in the details. He is still involved in every little intricacy.

God still wants the Tabernacle…His Temple, to be a spectacular display of His presence to dwell. The only difference today is we are the temple! He is still involved in every detail of the constuction…but the materials are our lives. We have a master builder in the Holy Spirit who is working to make our temples excellent.

It was Paul’s instruction to the Corinthians. It’s the cry in Romans 12:1 that calls us to this true act of worship. It’s not all on us, God is just as involved as He was in the old testament! The materials and the methods have just become personalized.

The Motions…My Prayer

Great song from Matthew West …. the video is a testimony, the song is my life prayer

“I don’t wanna go through the motions
I don’t wanna go one more day
Without your all consuming passion inside of me
I don’t wanna spend my whole life asking,
“What if I had given everything,
Instead of going through the motions?”
— Matthew West from the song “The Motions”

Breathe In & Smile Out,
Chris
