The Glory of the Lord (Exodus 40:1-38)
August 28, 2016 Speaker: Dr. David Silvernail Series: Exodus - The Glory of the Lord
Topic: Sermons Passage: Exodus 40:1–38
Well, we have finally come to the end of the Book of Exodus! Hard to believe, I know! We’ve spent the last year learning about God delivering His people from slavery so that they can worship Him. We learned about God delivering the Law to His people so that they might worship Him in holiness. And we learned about God’s instructions for building the Tabernacle so that He might dwell in the midst of His people when they come to worship Him. What’s the common denominator here? Worship! The Book of Exodus is really about the who, what, where, when, why, and how of worship!
There’s still a lot of detail in Exodus 40, our text for this week, but as I’ve said before, when you get bogged down in the details, take a step back and look for the principles. It’s clear from this final chapter of Exodus that meeting with God in worship is important to Him. It’s also clear that obeying God’s Word and recognizing our need for holiness when we come to meet with God in worship is important to Him too. And finally, it’s clear that the whole concept of “The Glory of the Lord” (the title of this sermon series) and how we respond to that Glory is critically important to God as well.
So each of us is forced to ask ourselves — Are the things that are important to God, important to me? Think about that before you jump to a quick answer. Is worship so important to you that it’s a priority in your life? Is holiness and obedience to God’s Word something you consistently work on? Is “The Glory of the Lord” important enough to you that it affects how you actually live your life? Those are hard questions, I know, but those are the kind of questions we’ll be dealing with this Sunday as we wrap up this wonderful book. Should be interesting! Hopefully, I’ll see you there!
