Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
"The Pattern Of Perfection"
"And let them make Me a sanctuary, that I may dwell among them. According to all that I show you, that is, the pattern of the tabernacle and the pattern of all its furnishings, just so you shall make it."
The Pattern of Perfection is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
Oh how clearly we see our Commander Jesus as The Pattern Of Perfection!
He willingly 'offered Himself,' which is far more precious than gold and silver (Exod.25:2).
He IS the 'Testimony' being the Law of Grace enthroned on the Mercy seat. (Exod.25:21-22).
He IS the Showbread, (Exod.25:30), the Bread of Life we feed upon every day (John 6:35). His Word, hot and fresh from the oven of heaven every morning, noon, and evening!
He IS the Lampstand, (Exod.25:37), the Light of the World that exposes and conquers the darkness of sin.
Our Commander Jesus IS The Pattern of Perfection!
When we gave our Life to Him He Gave His Life to us and is making us His Dwelling Place - like the Tabernacle that Moses made. "We are His Workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them."(Eph.2:10)
When we received His Life He began His work of sanctification, setting us apart from a common person to be a holy person for Himself. He is making us "... a sanctuary where He may dwell among us."
"For both He Who sanctifies and those who are being sanctified are all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren." (Heb.2:12).
In other words, this sanctification is a 'continuing process' of changing us more into His Pattern! (2Corin.3:18) This is an 'active work' not a passive work. God does the 'impossible work' of "working in us both to Will, and to Do, His good pleasure (Phil.2:13) and we do the 'possible work' of obeying and cooperating with Him in Love, Awe, and Wonder (Phil.2:12).
Like our Commander, we imitate His Pattern of Perfection by:
Willingly offering our life as His earthen vessel (2Corin.4:7) as a place for Him to dwell -
Being His 'Testimony' and witness to others of His awesome work in our life -
Serving the Bread of Life to others, hot and fresh every day -
And being the light of the world (Matt.5:14-16) pointing people to the True Light (John 1:9).
This is Your Mission, Warrior: To Know Your Commander Almighty God and To Make Him Known By Others. You will accomplish your Mission when you cooperate and obey your Commander's Orders! Oooh Rah!
