DCLM Devotional Message For Today 1st February 2023
The construction of King Solomon’s great temple went on for seven long years when its furniture, its courtyard and its fittings for decorations were completed. The interior of the temple was lavishly beautified. The stonework was overlaid with beaten gold. There were golden basins for frequent washing of hands and feet. It was a privelege to be considered worthy to enter the magnificent temple to worship.
The record and description of the temple’s furnishing are stated in the text. Most of the items and vessels inside the temple were made of gold. These included the ten candlesticks, five on each side to the temple and one hundred basons of gold.

The beautiful gold of the Solomon’s temple is, however, a fraction of that of the New Jerusalem, the holy habitation of God whose streets are made of gold. The beauty of this holy city can never be described with the language of man on earth. This is the place Christ has prepared for believers. The magnificence of this city prepared by Christ can never be compared with that of King Solomon’s temple which was construct by mortals.
Beyond physical temples, God has said that believers are His temples which He inhabits (1 Corinthians 6:19). This temple should therefore be garnished, beautified and cleansed through genuine salvation and true holiness. God warns that whoever defiles this temple shall be destroyed. Believers should take heed what they do with the temple of God.
If you are yet to get converted to Christ, you have an ample opportunity to do so now by repenting of your sins and placing your faith in Him. Then, you will become God’s temple and have the privilege of dwelling with Him in heaven.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God must dwell in you before you can dwell with Him.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Matthew 8-9
