YOU ARE GOD'S HOLY TEMPLE (4)

(Message by Tanny Keng)

1. You are God’s holy temple. 

a) God wants you to be a vessel of His glory shinning through you and touching other people. 

Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the Lord will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. (Isaiah 60:1 – 2 1)

b) In Exodus chapters, 33 & 34 we see that after the children of Israel had sinned against God, Moses interceded for them. Moses wanted God’s presence to continue to go with them. Moses also asked to see God’s glory. 

c) Then the Lord said,  

“I will make all My goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before you. I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion” (Exodus 33:19). 

Then God revealed His glory to Moses by revealing His name and His character. And the Lord passed before him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth (Exodus 34:6). 

d) The word merciful is the Hebrew word rachûm, which means to be full of compassion. This is a revelation of God’s love. We know that God is love, and we know that God is full of compassion.  

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love (1 John 4:7-8).


The End ...
