You Won’t Have to Do It Alone

Then David said to Solomon his son, “Be strong and courageous and do it. Do not be afraid and do not be dismayed, for the Lord God, even my God, is with you. He will not leave you or forsake you, until all the work for the service of the house of the Lord is finished. And behold the divisions of the priests and the Levites for all the service of the house of God; and with you in all the work will be every willing man who has skill for any kind of service; also the officers and all the people will be wholly at your command.”

1 Chronicles 28:20-21.

This task must have been intimidating to Solomon. It was a big project, but this was also his father’s dream, not his. But David did not only pass on the dream, but the charge to live a life of obedience and faithfulness to God, so that the dream may become his own.

Jesus left us a dream of building His house, the church, which is the body of Christ. We were told to go, to make disciples and teach obedience to His commands. Instead, we have given our time, talent and treasure to church buildings, where we hear self-help topics so we’ll be blessed. We are not living God’s dream, but our own.
