This week we are into the third part of our series based on the book of Ezra.
We are talking about worship (because it is actually quite a common theme through the book of Ezra), and how God’s people began to rebuild the altar and then the temple at Jerusalem.
And at the time of Ezra, God dwelt in a physical, geographical place (the Temple in Jerusalem), and so it was important for God’s people to rebuild the temple and begin their worship of God to allow his blessings to flow into their lives as per the Old covenant.
We now live in New Testament (covenant) times, and so instead of God dwelling in a physical, geographical place -he dwells within us.
What does this mean for us? Well it means that worship is who we are, and not something that we do. You are called to live a life of worship, called as living temples of the Holy Spirit to share God’s presence with the world.
The God of love reclaim you with His promises as you worship Him, Pastor Ben
