Our Spiritual Journey Inside the Tabernacle – Part 5: The Menorah

Inside the Tabernacle

So far we’ve seen that God has given us faith to enter through the fence of the tabernacle courtyard into His glorious kingdom.  We’ve found forgiveness through God’s own Son offered on the Bronze Altar.  We’ve taken a good look at ourselves in the Bronze Basin and committed to a new life with God.  And now we want more.

However, there are several things that separate mankind from a holy God.  The first thing that comes between God and man is faith.  Until we have faith, we cannot know God.  However, what we see as a barrier, God sees as an opportunity for blessing.

Receiving God’s Gifts

3I had always received things from God in terms of their value for others, not fully embracing their value for myself.  There had to be a practical reason for everything, including the talents and desires God gave me. As an example, although I wanted to take voice lessons, I found it difficult to get motivated, because I didn’t know what I would do with the singing once I learned how. It wasn’t enough that I just wanted to learn to sing.

One day in casual conversation, I found that a friend of mine spent a lot of time growing bamboo. My first question was, “What’s the commercial market for bamboo?” (more…)
