Imagine how amazing it must have been for the Israelites in the wilderness to know that the very presence of God lived just on the other side of the curtains of the Tabernacle. God, in all His power and glory, was… right there! But in time, they began to take God’s presence for granted, and their hearts turned away to idols. As a result, they lost His presence! Did you know that God still longs to dwell with us today, but He will not do so if we have any other “gods” before Him. Are we actively cultivating our hearts to be a pure, holy, welcoming place for God’s presence to dwell?
The Church is Not the Destination
“Church.” We say that word all the time, but do we really know what it means? Is the church the building down on the corner? Is it really the “house of God?” Are there traditions that have been added to the church that are actually hindering its mission? Which issues are worth defending in the church and which ones are a waste of time? Join us as we peel back these layers, and many more, to discover some eye-opening truths and make sure we’re being the kind of church Jesus intended from the start.
