Nancy Leigh DeMoss: If you were to hire someone to build a house, you’d have certain expectations.
“Well, you got the job. I’ll send you the blueprints.”
“Blueprints—nah; I just sort of make it up as I go.”
Nancy: It would be ridiculous for a builder to reject the blueprints. But it’s just as ridiculous when we reject God’s direction for our lives.
God gave Moses detailed directions for building a tabernacle. The people of Israel followed the blueprints. They wove priestly garments, made linens, set up curtains, veils, lamps, and incense all exactly as the Lord had commanded Moses. In fact, that phrase is repeated eleven times in the last two chapters of the book of Exodus. Once they obeyed, we read that the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle.
Do you want the glory of the Lord to fill your life? Your home? Your church? First, you need to obey God’s blueprints—the Bible.
