November 21 – Daily Notes – Amanda

holy of holies

In today’s reading, Ezekiel continues to describe his vision of the second temple. Though the details may seem tedious and like you’ve heard it all before, note that he talks about the separation between the holy and common in the temple. Isn’t it incredible that, when Jesus was crucified, the temple curtain was torn and anything that separated us from God was removed!?! Praise God for making a way to connect with us!

Ezekiel 42:1-43:27:

  • 13-20 – The separation between the holy space and the common space was torn when Jesus died for our sins.
  • 43:6-9 – The temple cannot hold the fullness of God, but simply his footstool.

James 5:1-20:

  • 1-6 – Those who are rich and cruel on earth have already experienced their blessings.
  • 12 – We shouldn’t need anything or anyone else’s trustworthiness to assure our own. Instead, we should simply be trustworthy so people will trust us.
  • 16-18 – Righteous prayers can seek forgiveness and healing and receive them. Prayers are powerful. This passage gives evidence of that

Psalm 119:1-16:

  • 1-8 – The psalmist seems so eager to follow God’s commands and understands that blessings come from obedience.

Proverbs 28:6-7:

  • 6 – Though this sentiment is unpopular in our society, wealth is far less important than integrity.
