Holy Tent (1)

In our Bible Reading today, God promised the Israelites that He would free them from slavery in Egypt, be their God and bring them to a new land. That is what the entire book of Exodus is about. Chapters 1-18 tell us how God freed the Israelites from slavery. In chapters 19-24, God makes the Israelites His special people and gives them His laws. Finally, in chapters 25-40, God commands the Israelites to build a Holy Tent where He will come and live among them.
The Holy Tent was a movable meeting place that God told Moses to build. God wanted a place where He could fellowship and communicate with the Israelites. The Holy Tent is sometimes called the Tabernacle or Tent of Meeting. For the next nine days we will look at God’s pattern for the Holy Tent and its furnishings.
God has always provided a way for people to be close to Him. He wants you to be close to Him today. Thank God for His wonderful plan of salvation.
