Today’s reading: Exodus 39:32
We read in Exodus 39:32:
32 Thus all the work of the tabernacle of the tent of meeting was finished. And the children of Israel did according to all that the LORD had commanded Moses; so they did.
The Tabernacle during the time of Moses is perhaps the most discussed single project in the entire Bible. After its completion, for the next 300 years, it became the focal point of worship for the Israelites.
Because of how detailed it has been mentioned in Exodus, we can even build it today or visualize it through drawings and diagrams.
This tells us that the Tabernacle is a significant project that holds a lot of great lessons.
First, the Tabernacle, no matter how elaborate and beautiful it was, was not meant to be permanent. In fact, it is a portable tabernacle that can be transported from one place to another.
This shows us that from the beginning, God didn’t intend to dwell in tents or physical temples, but He planned ultimately to dwell with us in the future after the millennium.
Second, worship is an important part of our spiritual life. The Tabernacle or the Tent of Meeting was a place of worship. It outlined how the Israelites should worship God. Whenever the Israelites need to move, they must place the Tabernacle at the center of the camp.
In the same way, worship should also be a central part of our lives. We don’t simply worship God during Sabbath services. We worship Him every day and we even worship Him through our good examples. We worship Him through the works of our hands. We worship Him through our lips. We worship Him through our life.
Third, the Tabernacle is a symbol of the obedience of the Israelites. Today, we are called the temple of the Holy Spirit, the dwelling place of God’s presence.
With this in mind, we must strive to use our body as a symbol of our obedience to God. In other words, our life should be a constant reminder to us and others of our commitment to doing the will of Yahweh.
