Exodus for Lent: Holy Week, Tuesday

Read: Exodus 35:20-35, Exodus 36:1

Reflect. Many chapters of Exodus give God’s detailed instructions for building the Ark of the Covenant, the Tabernacle and its furnishings, and the priests’ vestments. God wants to set His people’s worship apart from other nations and instruct them in proper worship. Note how willingly the people, who have been forgiven yet again, give of their goods and skills “in accordance with all that the Lord has commanded.” How willingly do you give of your goods and skills to serve in worshipping God today?  Do you feel God calling you to do more?

Write: Here or privately.

Recite: And he did the same with the cup after supper, saying, “This cup that is poured out for you is the new covenant in my blood.” Luke 22:20

Pray: Heavenly Father, thank you for loving your covenant people so much that you sent your Son to die for us. Seal in me a desire to worship you joyfully and share the triumphant message of salvation with the world. Amen.
