How does an ancient tent in the wilderness of Sinai relate to our relationship with God? The description of the tabernacle, God’s Old Testament dwelling place, spans sixteen chapters of the Bible. Yet many of us pass over this extended description without understanding its significance. In this series, we are going to be encouraged to consider this “tent of meeting” (Ex. 27:21). By studying the particulars of this first tabernacle, we will better understand Jesus, the One who dwelt, or “tabernacled,” among us (John 1:14) as well as our lives in Him. Join us for this six-week journey through “The Tabernacle.”
Other thoughts from the Youversion notes from Sunday:
- God’s presence is not simply about behavior modification but life transformation.
- The people were to create a space to be a special space so they, themselves, would become a sacred space.
- The Tabernacle was a pathway to God presence.
- The Tabernacle was an invitation to holiness.
- Some think holiness is all about what we get rid of. I submit, holiness begins with Who we invite in.
- The tabernacle is a tent where humanity and divinity met. Jesus is my tabernacle.
- When you enter God’s presence with praise, He enters your circumstances with power.
- The Tabernacle was a gift of healing.
Love you all! See you this Sunday!
BTW: Here’s a great song for the week…
