  In Our Midst

February 6, 2023
Daily Reading – Exodus 25-26 / Matthew 23:1-22

 

GOD’S WORD:

Exodus 25:8 And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them.

 

GETTING INTO GOD’S WORD:

    Have you ever seen a home where the owner built what is affectionately called a “mother-in-law apartment?” It is often a beautiful place, not too far from the main residence. It is also not too close to the main house either. Close enough to get to if there is an emergency. Far enough away not to intrude on the privacy of the main house..


    Sadly, that is how many people look at their relationship with Christ today. God is always there in case of an emergency but kept far enough away not to interfere with daily life. That my friend is not Christianity, that is insanity.


    God told Moses how to build a place in the center of Israel’s camp so that He would be very near every tent, and more important, the people in that tent. God said Exodus 25:8 “And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them.” God did not desire to be a God called out of Heaven. He wanted them to know just how close He really was. His desire was to dwell among them.


    One day in glory, we will all see exactly what He intended. Revelation 21:3 “And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.”
 

 

GETTING GOD’S WORD INTO ME:

    One way we know we are saved is that God dwells in us today. 1 John 4:13 “Hereby know we that we dwell in him, and he in us, because he hath given us of his Spirit.” 

 

Where do you go to find God in times of trial?
Is that the only time you seek Him?
