We come to another step forward in God’s work of redemption: the building of that more permanent place of worship, the Temple. God had already given the tabernacle to His people, but it was only meant to be temporary, while they were in the wilderness, until the Lord brought them into the Promised Land. This temple represents another important step forward in the work of redemption because of its connection with Christ and His benefits. This morning, we see three things: 

  • First, the Temple’s connection with heaven. 
  • Second, the Temple’s connection with Christ. 
  • And finally, the Temple’s connection with the Church.

We are challenged to go out, armed with the Gospel, and through the Gospel gather the living stones of the spiritual temple together. Make sure that you are trusting in Christ to save you, and make sure that your life shows that you are through your pursuit of holiness.
