The Chosen Devotional Day 28: Presence, Part 1

One Sabbath, [Jesus] was going through the grain fields, and as they made their way, His disciples began to pluck heads of grain. And the Pharisees were saying to Him, "Look, why are they doing what is not lawful [to do] on the Sabbath?-" Mark 2:23-24
  • With all its pomp and circumstance, do you find talk of the tabernacle interesting or boring, and why?
The talk of the tabernacle is interesting to me. Why? Because everything inside, every item placed, every corner where they are specifically placed have meaning and reasons which depicts the work of Jesus on the Cross.
  • Imagine the room where God's presence dwelt. Imagine approaching the cloud or pillar of fire. How would standing in His presence, in that warm and quiet place affect the way you view the requirements of the Law?
That would be very scary if I based the requirements of the Law as I entered into His presence. Obviously I don't pass the requirements and that means death.
  • Now imagine walking with Jesus. Imagine the unrestricted access, the casual conversation, and the warmth of His personality. That's all... just imagine.
*Overwhelms my heart*
