His Sanctuary

Exodus 25:8 “Then have them make a sanctuary for me, and I will dwell among them.” (NIV)*

God wanted to be with his children

So offerings, He asked them to bring

Pure gold, purple yarn, fine linen and such

Their most precious, treasured things.

………………..

They made a sanctuary for the Lord

Exactly like the pattern He showed

God knew what the tabernacle required

Measurements and placement, just so.

………………..

His plan was a dwelling place

Heart offerings became heaven’s home

Preparing the way for His offering–

When heart’s sanctuary would become His own.

………………..
