Moses tells the people what the Lord has commanded and asks the people who have a willing heart to bring the offering to the Lord. See, God’s desire is always for his people to have a willing heart to be with Him and obey Him. This has been His desire since the beginning in the garden but Adam and Eve chose not to obey His Word which caused all of us to inherit this sin problem. Now the Lord is making a place where a holy God can meet with a bunch of sinful people. The Israelites are instructed to build a temporary tabernacle for Him. God has gifted the people for the completion of building the tabernacle and carrying out all that He has commanded. Moses proves to be an extremely effective leader by listening to the Lord and assigning the people for the task at hand based on their giftedness. When the work of the Lord is handled properly by leaders people joyfully complete the work together. “Then everyone came whose heart was stirred, and everyone whose spirit was willing, and they brought the Lord’s offering for the work of the tabernacle of meeting…” 🎉Did you notice that the Lord also gifts women for the work of the Lord’s tabernacle? So everyone is happily using their gifts and working together as “the church”. Keep reading bc there is more work to be done.
