I will worship toward Your holy temple

From the Pastor

“I will worship toward Your holy temple,…” The worship of Old Testament believers was closely connected with the Tabernacle, or (after Solomon) the Temple of Jerusalem. There the Lord had chosen to dwell in the midst of His people Israel, above the Ark of the Covenant, between the golden cherubim. (Ex.25:22, 16:2). Israel worshipped in the Temple, since God was pleased to assure them of His presence by appearing to them there, receiving their sacrifices there, and speaking to them there (Lev.1:3, 17:1-9, cf. Ezek. 43:7). Even from a far away country (where no sacrifices could be made) they worshipped toward the Temple (I Kg.8:30), as Daniel did (Dan. 6:10). Yet, they knew that God was in heaven (1 Kg. 8:30, 43, Is.63:15). But the Priestly sacrifice for sin was made there, and God had called them to worship in such a way as to be mindful of their need of this mediatorial sacrifice, as the publican did when he pleaded for forgiving mercy. In the New Testament, the Gospel has spread throughout the world. Jesus prepared us to expect that worship would no longer be limited to one place (John 4:21). Yet we are still called to worship “toward God’s temple,” where the perfect High Priest has entered as the Lamb of God, having given Himself as the perfect sacrifice for sin (Heb.9:11). There Jesus is preparing the Temple of the New Jerusalem (Rev. 3:12, 11:19, 15:5, 21:2). From there Christ is also preparing His Church as His Bride. How appropriate then that our worship be heaven-directed! May our mind, heart and affections be lifted up “toward heaven,” “seeking those things which are above, where Christ is.” (Col.3:1,2).
