Solomon did it! It seemed a mammoth task before he began, but he did it! Hallelujah! I’m sure everyone felt like that when our church building was finished. Likewise, Jesus shall finish what He has begun! That day, too, shall come!
The word “gold” or “golden” is mentioned sixteen times in this reading.
It’s no coincidence that the most precious materials were used in the construction of Solomon’s temple, the temple of the Lord.
How good is it then to think about us as living stones, being built up as a spiritual house (1 Peter 2 v5).
Jesus is always building His church, and we are being refined, being even more precious than gold (1 Peter 1 v7).
We are a wonderful precious building material for God’s house, praise God!
