This week please read Exodus 35:4-29, and contemplate the unified involvement of the congregation as the Tabernacle project went forward.
Note that the resources provided included both supplies and skills*, and people were compelled from internal, not external motivation.
Pray that the elder council will understand God’s will for the project, and that God’s people will be unified in responding to the Lord’s promptings regarding involvement.
*One frequently asked question about the building project is, will we use volunteer labor? Due to securing permits, liability issues, contracts and other factors involved in projects “these days”, volunteer construction labor will be limited. We will maintain our commitment to obey the law (Romans 13) as we pursue the project. However, there will be need for much labor in a variety of areas (such as generating needed funding) as we move toward building!
