Reflections on Exodus 25-27

Our passage today describes how the tabernacle is to be made.

  • Giving – Before the tabernacle can be made, there must be materials.  So God tells Moses to call for a freewill offering toward the building of the tabernacle.  All who have a heart to give are to give.  What work of the Lord moves your heart to give?
  • God’s presence – Why should they build a tabernacle?  So God may dwell with them.  Almighty God will dwell in their midst.  Many years later, the God will become flesh and dwell (or literally – tabernacle) among us in the person of Jesus (John 1:14).  Today God dwells in his church by His Spirit (I Corinthians 3:16-17) and in each Christian individually (I Corinthians 6:19-20).  How should we live in light of his presence with us?  (Read the passages from I Corinthians for some ideas.)
