As I was reading through the last 9 chapters of 1 Chronicles and getting a picture of how David was preparing for the coming temple, it struck me how organized and structured it all was. The Temple is about worship of God. God wanted the worship of Him to be very structured and organized. I believe this is teaching us something about the character of God. God likes order and structure in worship to Him. This also means God wants us to think ahead and be proactive with our lives and worship towards Him. Think about it, when we are reactive to things and simply respond most of the time, sin becomes all that much easier and we become lazy worshippers of the King. God wants worship of Him to be structured into our lives and in an orderly fashion that honors Him. God wants organization and the same important elements in worship to Him. This truth about His character of God gives us 2 practical points for our lives.
1-Our worship services and church gatherings must be done in a way of structure, organization, and order. The service must be proactive in how it leads the people of God to worship God.
2-In our lives each day we must be proactive and intentional with our worship of God. Worship for God does not come naturally for 100% of the people. People would rather worship another god instead of the True Living God. We must arrange our lives each day in a way that leads us to the best worship of God possible. (This is an important Biblical truth I will look at in the months ahead).
