Yearly Reading: Exodus 25-27
"And have them make me a sanctuary, so that I may dwell among them." Exodus 25: 8 NRSV
I love the idea of a sanctuary that moves with the people - a tent that can be taken down, packed up, transported, then set up again for worship. I love the idea that God wants to be among the people - not just on a high mountain where someone would have to make a long pilgrimage to worship God. Certainly, to have this type of worship setting you need very specific instructions on what everything is made of and where it is placed. God provides that because God wants to dwell among them.
God wants to dwell with you today.
Where in your life do you need to set up a sanctuary?
What instructions to you need to listen to from God in order for it to be a holy place?
What precious gifts do you need to contribute with a glad heart in order for this to happen?
God, we invite you in the midst of our lives! Come, dwell with us! In the name of Christ Jesus, Emmanuel. Amen.
