DAY 156: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR
Today we conclude our journey through the book of Exodus. It appears that the Israelites learned the importance of obedience to God.
Ask God to reveal His meaning of Exodus 37-40 to you. Read Exodus 37-40. Let’s journey.
Exodus, the second book of the Jewish Torah and the Christian Old Testament, was written by Moses, whose life we begin to see in this book. The book of Exodus begins nearly 400 years after the book of Genesis ends, and the Hebrews have become slaves in Egypt, a sinful land. Throughout the book of Exodus, we can see how sin damages a person’s relationship with the Lord, and how the sins of a nation can damage the nation’s relationship with the Lord.
Exodus 37-40: The building is completed for the Tabernacle, the ark of Covenant, the Altar of Incense, and all the elements to complete the Lord’s dwelling place and point of worship for the Israelites. It was constructed precisely as the Lord had directed in material, measurement and assembly. (Exodus 37:1-40:38)
As you read chapters 37 through 40, carefully consider how sin affects a person’s or a nation’s relationship with the Lord God. What sin occurred in today’s reading? What was the consequence of that sin, or what was the consequence of a sin recognized in a pervious reading? What sin is affecting your relationship with God? How can you repair your relationship? Are you listening and looking for God in your life?
