is asking us to commit our lives to Him. On the coronary heart of our
dedication to the Lord, there should be worship: ‘We won’t neglect the
Home of our God’(39). ‘Worship God’(Revelation 19:10). That is our
purpose for coming to the Lord’s Home. We come to worship Him. Our
worship is to be greater than mere phrases. We worship God after we carry our
choices to Him. God’s folks introduced ‘the tithe’(tenth) to Him (37).
We meet with the Lord after we worship in His Home: ‘How superior is that this
place! That is none apart from the Home of God, and that is the gate
of heaven’. By our giving – ‘Of all that You give me I’ll give
You the tenth’- , allow us to categorical our dedication to the Lord – ‘the Lord
will likely be my God’(Genesis 28:17,21-22).
the partitions of Jerusalem, our lives lay in ruins till Christ places us
collectively once more. In Christ, our lives have been rebuilt. Now, we are able to
‘have a good time’. We will worship the Lord ‘with gladness’(12:27). We’re to
construct our lives upon Christ (1 Corinthians 3:11). This won’t be straightforward.
Our religion will likely be put to the take a look at. Typically, we will likely be tempted to take
our eyes off Christ. We should preserve our eyes on Him. He’s the strong Rock
upon which we should construct (Matthew 7:24-27). Repeatedly, we should
make our alternative. We should select Christ. We should select to be ‘holy’.
That is the selection which is ‘blessed’ by the Lord. ‘Many’ select the
‘different’ method, the way in which of self. We should select the way in which of the ‘few’, the
method of Christ, the way in which of holiness and blessing (11:1-2; Matthew
folks sang ‘songs of reward and thanksgiving to God’. The place does the
tune of reward come from? – It comes from the Lord: ‘God had given them
nice pleasure’(46,43). Typically, we search our pleasure in different folks and different
issues. We overlook the Supply of true pleasure – the Lord our God. God sees
our self-centred lifestyle. He asks us to consider the way in which we’re
dwelling: ‘Why is the Home of God forsaken?’(11). We now have forgotten Him.
Have we any proper to count on Him to recollect us? Time and time once more, we
have failed Him. Our many sins have given Him loads of causes for
turning His again on us. Does He flip His again on us? No! He remembers us
‘in keeping with the greatness of His steadfast love’(22) – He despatched His
Son to die for us. Let His nice love fill you with nice pleasure.
