This week I want to place the focus on the love of God. God had delivered the Israelites from slavery in Egypt through the 10 plagues. The Egyptians sent them out with the wealth of Egypt. Pharaoh changed his mind and went after them but God delivered the Israelites through the sea. He fed them and His presence went with them to Mount Sinai. There the people rebelled because Moses was gone so long that the people rebelled against the two commandments. God was very angry and told Moses to go destroy them, but Moses interceded and God changed His mind even through they were an obstinate people. God is full of grace, mercy and love for His people.
God ask the Israelites to bring part of the riches they left Egypt with to build the Tabernacle. They brought so much they had to be told to stop. Then the people that God equipped with the skills required created all the parts of the Tabernacle.
Exodus 39:42-43.. 43 And Moses examined all the work and behold, they had done it; just as the Lord had commanded, this they had done.
This last phrase occurs 9 times as each part of the tabernacle and the furnishings were described. The Israelites built the portable tabernacle parts exactly as God commanded. It is important for each of us to finish each project well that God assigns us. Years ago I read a book “Finishing Strong” and adopted that as one of my goals.
God loves His children so much that He sent Jesus to die for His eternal wrath for the sins of all humans whoever lived. I believe that was more than 20 billion people. This is love that we cannot comprehend but everyone who calls on the name of Jesus as Lord and believe in their heart that God raised Jesus from the dead shall be saved. A Unfortunately sin blinds many people and they reject this free gift of eternal life in heaven.
Jesus loves you and is calling you if have never accepted Him. For help click here or call me at 904-318-5266. Accept Jesus as your Savior and then finish strong.
