Lent 2018: See the Lord's Salvation: Day 28

Weekly Truth


Today's Text: Exodus 25:8

Scripture is God-breathed and true. When we memorize it, we carry the gospel with us wherever we go.

This week’s verse reminds us of the significance of the detailed instructions God gave for building the tabernacle.

“They are to make a sanctuary for me so that I may dwell among them.”
—Exodus 25:8

    Preparing a tabernacle. We are God’s dwelling place. Lord, help us. The details and the empowerment. It’s not just about taking care of our bodies but also our hearts, minds and souls. Love and Holiness. We can’t do it on our own. He shows us and puts His Holy Spirit in us. His ways, the cross and resurrection, His power, His mercy and grace. I’m humbled, bowed-low in my spirit before Him. He has begun the good work and will see it through to its completion. Praise the LORD.

    My Bible has Revelation 21:3 listed as a cross reference on today’s verse and I’m so glad I decided to read it:

    “And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.”

    Although the Holy Spirit dwells in us now, it’s just amazing to remember that God has promised to physically dwell with us one day!

    Me too! We deserve more because God cares about the details of our lives. Praying for His wisdom.

  • YvonneBonnie Delgado

    Amen! The details for the building and everything in it reminded me how God’s thoughts of us outnumber the grains of sand on the shore (Psalm 139:18). We are not a mistake, we are here and made by the designer, a loving Father, who knows every detail of each of our lives. Singing “So will I” by Hillsong United. Have a blessed Sunday everyone.

    God first dwelt among His particular people in a tent. He moved with them on their travels. He tabernacled with them in whatever neighborhood they found themselves. Then He dwelt with them in the Temple in the promised land. Designed for holy worship, He was there in the offerings and the Holy of Holies. And then He came to His people as Jesus and He told them and showed them that God loves them so very much He would indwell them. He would never be at a distance or behind a veil, but He would enter into them in the person of His Holy Spirit. We only need to invite and welcome Him in. He is everywhere we are. Ahhhh sanctuary… to rest in His presence which is within. How awesome. What great love. So grateful.

  • I am so thankful that Because of Jesus and the cross God dwells not just among us but within us. “Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God with your body.” 1 Cor. 6:19-20.

      Thank you for this scripture reference and reminder. I place my scripture cards on my fridge for all to see and will add 1 Cor. under it as well. I have been also placing scripture cards on my son’s bathroom mirror to get the word in his mind and heart and I know he is reading them as he commented to me that I at least print them and not write in cursive so he could read them better. I always pray that he make good choices in life and follow Jesus everyday and as a mom try to do everything possible to “get Jesus in” whenever I can. This reminder that our bodies our not our own, but God’s, is just another way to let him know to treat it with respect, and not just his, but others as well. Have a blessed Lord’s day.

        Susan, what a great idea. Some things stick more in our children’s hearts when they are written down than spoken from Mom. Just my experience. And you know he must be reading them from his comment to print them out!

  • Kelsey Born

    This makes me think of my body as a temple I’m building for the Spirit to dwell in. I can honestly say I’m not making the best choices to build a temple where God would want to dwell. I love that He chooses to be with us, even though we are imperfect.

    • Taylor Davis

      I had been thinking the same thing just yesterday! I need to make better choices here too!

    I’m not sure if this is allowed, but I was catching up on the Thessalonians study last night and noticed a comment by someone who attends Williamette Church in Oregon. My husband and I are in the very early stages of considering a relocation to the Williamette Valley and I would love to pick the brain of a like-minded woman as we are discussing and praying about this. If that is you, and you’re willing to communicate with me, please email [email protected]
    Thank you! :)
