"This is how we know we are in Him: whoever claims to live in Him must walk as Jesus did" (I John 1:5b-6). Most people never see this verse marking a place on this page. That's because blank devotional pages are prepared in advance and the verse marks where devotional content will go. Today, this verse is part of the devotional thought. Read it a couple of times and determine for yourself if responsible living is a corporate church activity or an individual one.
The ark of the covenant represented the presence of God to the Israelites. The placement of the rings was important because strategically placed the ark would be balanced as long as everyone did their job. The fact that an insulating pole was inserted through the rings reminds us that God is holy and demands reverence. The four people who transported the ark had to be fit and responsible or the ark would fall. Finally, the ark was designed to be moved, most always leading a procession of God's people and many times with trumpeters and musicians heralding the way. Who said the Old Testament has no relevance to us New Testament saints?
Thank You, God, for equipping Your people with proper tools for doing Your work.
