So why should we be interested in this “Tent of Meeting” anyway? Isn’t it just an old tent? The Tent of Meeting is really exciting. It is an amazing symbol and part of God’s plan to bring human kind back into relationship with Him, a relationship that was damaged by sin in the Garden of Eden. Like so much of God’s plan, it is revealed little by little and at each step there are important things for us to learn about Him and ourselves. Let’s consider the Tent of Meeting and how it might help us relate more closely to the living God. Questions for Lifegroup: 1. How does the way people responded to meeting God in the Old Testament make you feel? 2. How do you feel about approaching God with “reverence”? How might these feelings affect your prayer life? 3. What do you hope for when seeking God’s presence?
