Day 38

Day 38 reading – Exodus Chapters 25-27

Then have them make a sanctuary for me, and I will dwell among them. Make this tabernacle and all its furnishings exactly like the pattern I will show you.  Exodus 25:8-9

They just don’t build ’em like they used to.

Have you ever considered that without Christ – the Messiah – we would still be building temples to these specifications?

We might end the worship wars of contemporary vs traditional. We would certainly have a lot of interested spectators when it came time for the sacrifices.

Consider all the worldly goods and possessions that were given to construct the tabernacle.

Now think of how begrudgingly we give to maintain our church buildings or to build new ones.

Just some thoughts to consider while reading through the description of the good old days spent in the desert with God.

Day 39 reading – Exodus Chapters 28-29

I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
