Sunday 07.29.18 (Jesus and the tent)

This Sunday we’ll wrap up our series in Exodus by taking a look at the construction of the tabernacle in 40:1-38, and we’ll see how Jesus is the better Tabernacle that allows us to intimately experience God’s presence. Then on Sunday Night, we’ll begin a new video series–Follow Me by David Platt. We hope to see you there!

Sermon Notes
Jesus and the Tent ~ Exodus 40:1-38

The sermon in one sentence: The Tabernacle was a large tent where people could experience God’s presence, but from a distance; Jesus is our better Tabernacle that allows us to experience God’s presence intimately.

  • The Old Testament Tabernacle
    • Its design displayed separation (40:1-8, 16-33)
    • Its funishings and workers displayed holiness (40:9-15)
    • Its existence displayed God’s presence (40:34-38)
  • Jesus as our better Tabernacle
    • Jesus ended the separation between us and God (Hebrews 10:19-22); therefore, draw near to God through the Bible, prayer, and worship
    • Jesus purifies us from sin and makes us holy (Hebrews 9:21-28); therefore, pursue practical holiness by repenting of sin and striving for godly virtue
    • Jesus ushers us into God’s presence (Hebrews 12:22-24); therefore, be thankful and exalt God as supremely worthy
