“And ook that thou make them after their pattern, which was shewed thee in the mount.” Exodus 25:40Text — Exodus 25:35-40
Antoni Gaudi is listed as number one of the world most brilliant Architects. The most famous of his projects is the 1883 cathedral known as La Sagrada Familia, still under construction today. Gaudi’s work would go on to have great impact on many generations. What then does an architect do? Architects are professionals trained in the art and science of building design. They produce patterns that our builders follow. Can you imagine a world without architects?
We would have missed the beauty of the fine buildings we see all over the world.
The greatest Architect is God. The human architects cannot be compared to Him. Can you see the beauty of the world He designed and built? He gave the pattern of the tabernacle to Moses. God does not only give pattern or design for physical building but, also the spiritual building of our lives. God’s laws form a pattern upon which our lives must be built. We do not choose to serve God the way we want, God has a pattern or a way He wants us to serve Him. So, it is not the way you want but the way God wants. He wants you to serve Him in righteousness and in truth. He cannot accept anything outside His pattern.
Prayer for today
Lord, give me the wisdom to pattern my life after Your word.
