Re:Verse passage – 2 Chronicles 6:12-42 (day six)
The temple was a house of prayer. The whole purpose of atoning sacrifices was to pave the way for the people to commune with God; to petition him from out of their brokenness and sin, to find wholeness again. This ornate building was to be a constant reminder of that reality, that the God who fashioned the heavens and the earth, gave the people his name on which to call, giving his infinite and glorious attention to a people who need his help.
The temple was a sign of hope and promise:
That if they would humble themselves and call upon the Lord, they would be saved.
Jesus, is not a sign, he is the truth. He is temple, sacrifice, and high priest…
God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved. Acts 4:12
