February 25

Moses went into great detail concerning each and every feature in the construction of the temple, and all its furnishings. Nothing was left to the imagination because God had given him a perfectly laid out plan, even down to the detail of the cleansing basin; it was made out of reflective brass, given to Moses by the women who ministered at the entry of the tent of meetings. It seems that the temple was quite important to God, being it was where he was going to meet with the priest on behalf of the people. The priest had to be perfectly clean, and pure to enter, or he would end up dead on the floor; whoever went into the temple had to be holy and consecrated to the Lord.

Do you think the importance of the temple has disappeared? It hasn’t, but the Priest we trust is holier than any other who came before him, and he goes before God on our behalf so that we do not die on the floor of the temple while looking for redemption. Remember that our bodies are now the temple. Make a concerted effort to live clean for the sake of our Lord Jesus, and the Holy Spirit that resides within you. Look at your reflection, and see if it resembles Jesus. If it doesn’t, ask the Holy Spirit to help you modify your life to become a reflection of Him.

"He made the basin of bronze and its stand of bronze, from the mirrors of the ministering women who ministered in the entrance of the tent of meeting." Exodus 38:8 

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
