doing windows

Ezekiel 40:24-27 (JDV)

Ezekiel 40:24 He brought me to the south side, and I noticed there was also a gate on the south. He measured its jambs and portico; they had the same measurements as the others.
Ezekiel 40:25 Both the gate and its portico had windows all around, like the other windows. It was 50 cubits long and 25 cubits wide.
Ezekiel 40:26 Its stairway had seven steps, and its portico was ahead of them. It had palm trees on its jambs, one on each side.
Ezekiel 40:27 The inner court had a gate on the south. He measured from gate to gate on the south; it was 100 cubits.

doing windows

Redpath points out that windows “would be unnecessary if the light fell from above.” 1

The mention of windows in the new temple vision is an important clue to its meaning. The light comes into the temple and shines out from it by means of the windows.

Jesus calls on his followers to be the light of the world. If we are the temple, prepared for the presence of God within, then we must also be prepared to manifest that presence to others. We cannot “not do windows.”

LORD, build windows into our lives through which we can shine your presence.
