Thursday, September 15th: Ezekiel 41-44 ~ Jeannine

Today's passage from the Bible In a Year Reading Plan is Ezekiel 41-44

The detail that God put into designing the Temple is incredible.  And I can't imagine if He put so much detail into a temporary dwelling, how much more detail and perfection will there be in our eternal home.

Ezekiel 42:16-20
He measured the east side with his measuring rod, and it was 875 feet long. Then he measured the north side, and it was also 875 feet. The south side was also 875 feet, and the west side was also 875 feet. 20 So the area was 875 feet on each side with a wall all around it to separate what was holy from what was common.

The temple was completely symmetrical showing the perfection of the building.

Another thing I always think of when reading about the rules for the priests, the sanctuary or the sacrifices, is  how grateful I am that God sent His Son and that I don't have to try to follow all those rules.  It's His grace that saves me, not what I do or how I do it.  I think I would have failed miserably if I had to keep to all the rules.

Tomorrow's Bible In a Year Passage: Ezekiel 45-48

The perfection and detail is amazing!

All those rules is what made it obvious that we could never measure up to the perfection.
