The proper place for one to worship God…

  1. The proper place for one to worship God, and the necessary propriety in service to the Lord.
  2. Application: My overly simplistic description of the chapter gets to the same important point made throughout the Pentateuch, that the Lord will not allow the individual worshipper or the nation to do as he (they) please. It must be done in accordance with the Lord’s will. To lose sight of this is to lose sight of how to please God. When we gather together to worship, God needs nothing from us. He does want something from us, and that is a heart-expressed form of obedience (cf. Romans 6:16-18).
