Exodus 25-30 are not on the devotion card, and these are chapters that I usually skim. But I thought I would add some thoughts on these chapters, too.
These chapters are mainly about the building of the Tabernacle – a large tent where people would worship God, and be reminded of His presence. Exodus 29:43-46 says, “I will meet the people of Israel there, in the place made holy by my glorious presence. Yes, I will consecrate the Tabernacle and the altar, and I will consecrate Aaron and his sons to serve me as priests. Then I will live among the people of Israel and be their God, and they will know that I am the Lord their God. I am the one who brought them out of the land of Egypt so that I could live among them. I am the Lord their God.” The Lord’s desire is to live with His people – to in a holy relationship with us.
So He shows the Israelites how to worship Him. He brings in spiritual leaders (priests, though the whole nation is to be a kingdom of priests). He gives instructions about worship and how to build the Tabernacle – a simple set of instructions that will take a lot of work and sacrifice, but the instructions are not complicated.
God wants us to know He is with us; His presence will never leave us; He loves us and calls us to walk with Him.
