Solomon Builds The Temple

There is an ever-present need for us to be amazed at who God is. Amazement and wonder fuel the true Christian life. If we are not amazed with God, we will soon find ourselves motivated by guilt, obligation, or need. These motivations fail us in that they can be overtaken by difficulty of circumstances, emotional disconnect, or simple distraction.

Only the glory of God serves as a sufficient motivation to continually drive us forward in ministry and mission.

This week we will see that the wonder of the temple was seen in the fact that God chose to set his name on a specific place among his people. The power of the temple was experienced as God used his presence among his people to spread his fame around the world.
