Exodus 24-25

Exodus 25:8

_And let them make me a sanctuary, that I may dwell in their midst._ Exodus 25_8.png

“And let them make me a sanctuary, that I may dwell in their midst.”

After confirming the covenant, God instructs Moses to have the Israelites build Him a sanctuary. He promises to dwell among them.

God has never been distant; He has always desired to be close to His creation, to dwell among us. The sanctuary the Israelites constructed was a physical embodiment of this phenomenon. Now, we have the incredible gift of the Holy Spirit dwelling inside us- We are His sanctuary. Do our lives embody His love? We have a responsibility to honor God’s presence and to view ourselves as holy temples of the Lord.

God most high, Almighty Father, it astounds me that You desire closeness with us. So often my life fails to honor Your nearness. Help me to respond daily to the responsibility of Your presence. Thank You for dwelling with us, inside us.
