Pursing Intimacy with Jesus, part 1-God wants to be in the center of your life, just like the Tabernacle was in the center of the Israelite nation. Moreover, we can enter the most holy place of the Tabernacle, we can enter into the presence of God, because of Jesus. Faith in Jesus carries us into the presence of God. Enter without trying to cover up your sin. Don’t pretend with God.
Part 1- Sermon Length 54:52
Pursing Intimacy with Jesus, part 2-Just like the Tabernacle was a portable worship place, God wants to go with His people wherever they go. Central to the Tabernacle was the Ark of the Covenant. The Ark was a fancy box which symbolized the human heart. What’s in the box? 1. Manna, representing God supplying our needs. Don’t be selfish. Depend on God. 2. Aaron’s rod that budded, representing God’s authority. You have no place to demand your way with God. 3. The 10 Commandments representing God’s moral standards. Covering the box is the atonement cover, the mercy seat, the throne of grace. God wants to deal with our heart, the core of our being. Obeying God is key.
