The “house for God” (Temple) was of value because of the presence of God and fulfillment of promises He made to His people. But these were contingent: “…if you will walk in My statutes and obey My rules and keep all My commandments and walk in them…” (1 Kings 6:12-13). We have no interest in a building that lacks God’s presence and promise—pray we will be an obedient people!
