his one way

Deuteronomy 12:12 You will enjoy the face of Yahveh your God ā€“ you, your sons and daughters, your male and female slaves, and the Levite who is within your city gates, since he has no portion or inheritance among you.
Deuteronomy 12:13 Be careful or else you will offer your ascending offerings in all the sacred places you see.
Deuteronomy 12:14 You must offer your ascending offerings only in the place Yahveh chooses in one of your tribes, and there you must do everything I command you.

his one way

Only one place was to be the central point of worship for the Israelites. Only one tribe was to host them all for that worship. The multitude could experience all kinds of diversity and cultural differences, but in their connection to God, they had to be one nation with one God.

They could also do things differently as individuals or as members of a particular tribe, but the tabernacle was not the place to celebrate their individuality. Every aspect of the tabernacle worship was prescribed. The principal that follows us into the new covenant with Christ is this: we can all enjoy the presence of God but we have to be careful to do it his way. His way is Jesus.

Lord, thank you for the way you have provided for us all to come to you.
