I Chronicles 28:20) And David said to Solomon his son, Be strong and of good courage, and do it: fear not, nor be dismayed: for the LORD God, even my God, will be with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee, until thou hast finished all the work for the service of the house of the LORD.


The purpose of the Temple was not so that God would have a house here on Earth. It's purpose was to reveal God to man. Each ritual, each sacrifice, each part of the temple was built to point people to the need of a Savior. That Savior was Jesus.

So many times we put major effort into activities, events, and programs without ever really asking ourselves if it serves the real purpose of the Church. We must have the right motive. If we do not have the right motive then our intentions are destined for failure.

Having the right motive does not always guarantee us the results that we seek. One of the earliest lessons I learned in my ministry was that It was my job to be obedient to God and do as I felt He was leading me. It was God's job to work on people's hearts and get the results.

Remember when you have the purpose of revealing God to the world that you are not responsible for how they react. Each person is himself responsible how he reacts to the Good News about Jesus Christ.

Please feel free to contact me by email at with questions, comments or even suggestions for further devotional studies.

If you know of someone new to the Kosciusko area and would like for our church to visit them please let us know. Our prayers are that this devotional ministry will be an outreach to bring people into a closer relationship with Jesus. I do appreciate you taking the time to read these devotionals and please keep us in your prayers.
