God’s Design Ps 19: 1-6 CLICK TITLE FOR AUDIO
God designs every place where he dwells. God’s design and his presence in each “temple” he designed bring Him glory!!
He designed the universe that he inhabits – Heb 11:3, Jn 1:3 – the universe fits him perfectly; it’s tailor-made Heb 1:10-12 – and the heavens bring him glory Ps 19:1-6, Rom 1:20.
He designed the Tabernacle that he inhabited – Ex 15:17, Ex 25:8-9 – the very specific design and dimensions were His pattern – and his glory was seen in that tabernacle Ex 40:34.
He designed the Temple that he inhabited – 1 Ki 8:10-13, 1 Chr 28:11-19 – the very specific design and dimensions were His pattern – and his glory was seen in the temple 1 Ki 8:60.
He designed His body, the church, which he is now building and which he inhabits – Matt 16:18; 1 Cor 3:11, Col 1:27 – the church is His perfect habitation Eph 1:22-23, Rev 21:22, Eph 4:12-13 – and his glory is seen in the church Eph 3:21.
He has a perfect design for us whom he inhabits – 1 Cor 6:19-20 – we are to be conformed to His image Rom 8:29 – and He lives His life in us perfectly when we are conformable to his death Phil 3:10, Gal 2:20 – the picture of Vitruvian Man demonstrates the perfect proportions of buildings when the man’s arms are outstretched like Christ’s were when he hung on the cross – even so when we are dead in Christ, He can live His life fully in us and we thereby glorify Him, Col 1:27.
