Re:Verse passage – 2 Chronicles 3:1-17 (day seven)
On this day last week, our church gathered in worship to celebrate our Savior defeating the grave, but the celebration didn’t end at 11:59pm April 4th…
Matthew 27:51 tells us that the veil was torn from top to bottom, a symbol that the holy of holies was now open. If we read the footnotes in our re:verse passage this week, verse 8 could literally read, “Now he made the [house] of the holy of holies.” The purpose of this room was to be a house for the presence of the Lord, so where does God move to in Matthew 27? His new “home” is you. His new “home” is me. His new “home” is inside of all who call upon His name.
1 Corinthians 3:16 “Do you not know that you are a temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?”
Not only are you the new temple, you are the most holy place where God will make His “home.” We have seen Solomon going to extraordinary lengths to build a home for the Lord. To what lengths are you going to prepare your home for the Lord?
