God Delivers: The Lawgiver's Tabernacle

God Delivers: The Lawgiver's Tabernacle

March 05, 2017 | Luke Pavkov
Exodus 25:1-9

God Delivers: The Lawgiver’s Tabernacle

Exodus 25:1-9

 I. God Provided for the Tabernacle through His People (Exodus 25:1-7, 35:4-29, 38:24-31)

 1 Chronicles 29:3-19

 1 Corinthians 8:1-9

 ~ Redemption always leads to joyful and sacrificial giving.

2 Corinthians 9:7 - “Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”

II. God Built the Tabernacle through His People (Exodus 25:8-31:11, 35:30-39:43)

Exodus 31:1-6

1 Peter 4:10-11 - “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace:  whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies-in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.”

 ~ Redemption leads us from being consumers to being servers.

III. God Filled the Tabernacle with His Presence (Exodus 25:8, 40:34-38)

1. The tabernacle shows the love of God – He has a heart to be among His people.

2. The tabernacle shows the holiness of God.

3. The tabernacle ultimately points us to Christ.

Hebrews 8:4-6 - “They (the priests and tabernacle) serve a copy and shadow of the heavenly things. For when Moses was about to erect the tent, he was instructed by God, saying, ‘See that you make everything according to the pattern that was shown you on the mountain.’  But as it is, Christ has obtained a ministry that is as much more excellent than the old as the covenant he mediates is better, since it is enacted on better promises.”

 Faith Sheet

Monthly Memory Verse - Romans 8:1 - “Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”
