Moses received precise instructions from God concerning the details for the Tabernacle, God communicated clearly how to construct the dwelling where He would meet Israel.
There were precise instructions for moving the Ark of the Covenant, David in his zeal overlooked this, and it resulted in the death of Uzzah. Once again details are important.
Jesus gave precise instructions, the wedding feast, healing the blind, the woman caught in adultery, the meeting place for the Passover meal, and where the faithful were to tarry prior to Pentecost are all expressing details, ones to be carried out as He intended.
Today it’s the same, remember how our Lord spoke:
“For I am the Lord, I change not…” Malachi 3:6
What our Lord is accomplishing within His disciples is of greater magnitude than a physical Tabernacle, more precious than the Ark of the Covenant, or changing water to wine.
He is redeeming what was defiled, resurrecting what was dead, reconciling what was fully opposed to Him. He is creating within His disciples the greatest feat of His entire creation, sons in His image, likeness and nature.
We must have our souls humbled before our Lord in a deeper understanding of what is before us, we must see what we don’t see, and submit more fully to the workmanship of His hands.
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another.”
This Love is not what we think, it is the very Nature of God, His character, quality, purity, and righteousness.
Yes Love is the greatest, because Love is the very essence of God, and this is exactly what we are to become in Him.
