No Temple Needed

Solomon needed the temple to worship God. Then when Jesus made His sacrifice on the cross, no temple was needed. By grace we can approach the throne of God. Unlike Moses we do not need to cover our faces when we commune with God. The hymn reminds us ‘Turn your eyes upon Jesus look full in His wonderful face.’

That is not the end of the story. We see God only dimly now. It is as if w ‘see through a glass darkly,’ but the time is coming when we will see Him face to face in His full glory. With our human thoughts and minds, we are not ready to cope with such splendour; our sin is an obstacle. Praise the Lord, the day is coming when there will be no barrier to His glory.
