Exodus 25, How do you get personal application from this?

Question: How do you get personal application from these kinds of scriptures where God is just giving instruction? Answer: The Word is living and active, so God can speak to us personally from very obscure passages. Many times God wants to teach us about who He is, not just what we should do. As we study the Old Testament I would suggest 3 main things we learn. The Past - Christianity is the completion of the Old Covenant, so we learn the context of God's revelations of Himself and words to His people. The Present - Studying the Old Covenant helps us understand and appreciate the New Covenant relationship we have with God through Jesus. The Future - The tabernacle is a shadow of Heaven (Hebrews 8) and so we learn about eternity in the Old Covenant. -PJ
