Scripture Read Exodus 25-28
Nugget Exodus 25:40, 26:30, 27:8b
“And see that you make them according to the pattern for them, which is being shown you on the mountain. … Then you shall erect the tabernacle according to the plan for it that you were shown on the mountain. … They shall be made just as you were shown on the mountain.”
Devotional Thought: The “mountain” certainly a reference to the Moses meeting with God where God issued instructions for His people to follow. This repeated reference is a reminder to us of who and what we are to obey. Who our guide is and who is the author of the guidelines we are to follow. The instructions for the tabernacle, the place where God will display His presence to His people, is a portable structure, it represents the mountain, but provides accessibility to God wherever God leads His people. The kingdom of God is where God is, where God is – the kingdom of God is found. We are God’s people, we are made for the kingdom, let us remember, let us live obedient lives that reflect the kingdom of God.
