Sermon Sketch | “The One Worshiped Sets the Rules”

The One Worshiped Sets The Rules
Exodus 25:23-30

1. Why is so much space given to the building?

  • The amount of space given to describing the building is important.
  • God directs Moses to record a meticulous account of the construction.

2. Worship is… acknowledging the worth of something relative to our own worth.

  • We worship what we value.
  • We value what we desire.
  • We desire what will satisfy our souls.

3. Satisfaction of the soul… is an existential reality

We want for our life to have purpose and meaning.

  • Our Satisfaction comes form purpose
  • Our Purpose is determined by our design
  • Our Design come from God

4. Only God can decide what is appropriate worship.

  • God knows what will please him.
  • God knows what will displease him.
  • God is not required to explain himself to his creation.

5. What Does This Reveal?

  • We have grown to big for our britches.
    • We think that we know what pleases God.
  • The purpose of worship is God’s pleasure, not our own.
