Week 13

September 19th, 2017
 
Detailed Obedience
Exodus 40:1-33
 
Read
Moses proceeded to do everything just as the LORD had commanded him. (Exodus 40:16)
 
Reflect
God told Moses how to build the Tabernacle. Moses carefully obeyed God’s instructions to the smallest detail. He didn’t make a reasonable facsimile from God’s description but an exact copy. Moses didn’t do all the work himself either; he involved others, delegating jobs in order to get everything done. God allows people to participate with him in carrying out his will.

We should follow Moses’ example and be conscientious about our obedience. If God has told you to do something, do it, do it right, and do it completely.

The physical care of the Tabernacle required a long list of tasks, and each was important to the work of God’s house. Many tasks can seem unimportant, but they can be made holy when they are done for God. They can be vital to the ministry of the church and have an important role in our worship of God. But you don’t have to do it alone. Invite others to work alongside you.
 
Respond
God wants you to do more than sit and watch. He has invited you to be part of all that he’s doing. He wants you to be involved and to invite others, too. The church is a community of people participating with God to help the whole world worship him. Are you in?
