Buildings

Moses in the Ten Commandments on screen at a drive in theatre in Utah 1958.

People more important than:

Then he said:

“Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel, who with his own hand has fulfilled what he promised with his own mouth to my father David. For he said – – 1 KINGS 8:15-21

For 480 years after Israel’s escape from Egypt, God did not ask them to build a temple for him. Instead he emphasised the importance of his presence among them and their need for spiritual leaders.  It is easy to think of a building as the focus of God’s presence and power, but God chooses and uses people to do his work.  He can use you more than he can use a building of wood and stone.  Building or enlarging our place of worship may be necessary, but it should never take priority over developing spiritual leaders.
