Do you remember the days of rotary phones? My parents had one mounted on the wall. You could only go as far the cord stretched. You were stuck. Immobile.
Maybe this is how we think of God—tied to a space like a church or temple. But, this isn’t the case. God isn’t localized. He chooses to dwell with His people as evidenced in the construction of the tabernacle in Exodus 25-40. This tabernacle would move with Israel signifying His intent to journey with His people.
This Sunday we will explore the significance of the tabernacle and trace the theme all the way into the New Testament. We’ll answer the following questions:
- What’s so important about sacred space?
- What is holiness? Why is God so adamant about holiness?
- How does the Lord dwell among us today?
- How can we draw near to Him?
- How can help others find access and intimacy with God?
In preparation for Sunday it would be helpful to read and review the following texts:
- Exodus 25:1-9; 40: 34-48
- John 1:1-5, 14
- Ephesians 2:19-22
- 1 Corinthians 3:16-17
- 2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1
