Through the Bible Day by Day
And of the blue, and purple, and scarlet, they made cloths of service, to do service in the holy place, and made the holy garments for Aaron; as the LORD commanded Moses.
Thus was all the work of the tabernacle of the tent of the congregation finished: and the children of Israel did according to all that the LORD commanded Moses, so did they.
THE TABERNACLE AND ITS FURNITURE
Ten times over we are told that all the work was done, as the Lord commanded Moses. See Exo_39:43. Their obedience had been minute and exact; and the blessing of the Lawgiver was the outward and audible assurance of the divine “Well done.” We are carried forward in thought to anticipate the verdict, which will be passed upon our own life-work. Will our Lord, when He beholds it, be able to say that it has all been wrought according to His pattern and in obedience to His command? Alas, that is too much to expect! We have been, too often, disobedient and unprofitable. We would love to hear the Master say “Well done! I know thy works, and thy love, and faith, and patience, and that thy last works are more than the first.” But is there not reason to fear that He may say: “I have found no works of thine perfected before my God”? See Rev_2:19; Rev_3:2. Let us repent, seek forgiveness and start again!
