SAA Notes

Every skilled person worked on the Tabernacle. What skills are necessary to be builders in the body of Christ the Church – at St. Stephen’s? They will be common and ordinary skills!

SJA Notes

“The people bring much more than enough for doing the work that the LORD has commanded us to do.”

Here is a clear example of what it means to give as your heart moves you (as the Lord states a number of times over the previous passages).

It is a good encouragement and exhortation to us – Are our hearts open to the Spirit’s moving, to be generous without thought of return?

It’s a strange time for all of us right now (2020), much uncertainty is rife across the entire globe.

Let’s following the example of God’s people here, show Jesus to those around us – Our King who gave Himself, generosity unmatched.

* Dear Lord God,

Please watch over us at this time.

Please mark us as a generous people, not thinking about return, but our hearts fixed on You.

Thank You for the assurance that You are at work for our good, bringing us to glory.

Amen.
