Guiding Scripture: Hebrews 9:5 ‘Above the ark were the cherubim of the Glory, overshadowing the atonement cover. But we cannot discuss these things in detail now.’
written by: Torrie Slaughter
Now that we are nearing the end of the year, I’m sure many of us are reflecting, praying, and hoping we’ve learned something. The signs of growth become evident in our speech, thoughts, actions, and overall character. We can not ignore the things of the past.
The first half of Hebrews 9 goes back to the Old Testament. Memories of deep discussions about the layout of the tabernacle, David and his men needing the shewbread, and the Israelites gathering Manna in the wilderness. Those were all signs that God’s presence is a source of provision.
The author of Hebrews explains that the old system vanished away with the death and resurrection of Christ Jesus.
Does God still sit on the throne? Yes!
Is Jesus our High Priest? Yes!
Do we need to build elaborate sanctuaries, temples, or churches to worship? No!
We do not need the symbols of worship to commune with God. He writes His Word on the hearts of everyone who believes in Christ Jesus. We are called to make service significant in our daily lives. Preparing the way for others to see Jesus through the details of our behavior is to live as His ambassadors.
Prayer: Lord, you are everlasting; your mercy endures forever. Thank you, Abba Father, for your wisdom. Amen
