The book of Exodus ends one year to the day after Israel has been freed from their slavery in Egypt. The workers finished everything for the Tabernacle and it is ready to assemble. On this first day of the year, Moses puts all the pieces of the Tabernacle in order and consecrates it, including Aaron and his sons. Eight times in the text we see “just as the LORD had commanded him” or “just as the LORD had commanded Moses.” Israel completed everything in absolute obedience, just as the LORD required. And the result? God’s glory filled the Tabernacle and his presence dwelt among Israel.
Are you working just as God has commanded?
