Temple Prep

1 Chronicles 21-22

19 Now devote your heart and soul to seeking the Lord your God. Begin to build the sanctuary of the Lord God, so that you may bring the ark of the covenant of the Lord and the sacred articles belonging to God into the temple that will be built for the Name of the Lord.” 1 Chronicles 22:19


Today's reading is about David making preperations for the temple that Solomon will ultimatly build. But it got me thinking about temple buiding and preperations today. Today, we are the temple: more on that here.

So, here are some big challenging questions for us...


What's first in temple care and prep? (Devotion of our whole hearts and souls...sound familiar?) How do we "begin to build"? We talk a lot about the Great Commandment and loving God wholeheartedly, but what do we actually engage in to care for the temple? Thoughts?
