remember Shiloh

IMG_1315Jeremiah 7-8:3

Jeremiah is told to stand at the gate of the temple and warn the people that they are trusting in a place rather than the LORD himself.  Even if it is – or was – the LORD’s chosen place (as Shiloh was) it offers no security.  A place is just a place, and a building is just a building.  The same message goes for those who go to worship every weekend and then live like the devil every week.  Remember Shiloh, how the LORD removed his presence from that place.  Our God is not confined to a local residence.  An hour or two every week pretending to worship does not constitute a relationship with him.

LORD, teach us how to live in your presence all the time.
