Solomon & the Temple of God (1 Chronicles 28-29; 2 Chronicles 7)
Sunday with your kids
Lesson summary: Now that peace has come to Israel, Solomon builds a house for God.
In our bible story we learned:
1. The Lord's temple is a place of rest
2. David took up an offering for the temple
3. The glory of the Lord filled the temple
Where is Jesus?
How does today's Bible story fit into God's greater plan of redemption?
Solomon was commissioned by God to build the temple. The temple would be the place where God’s presence would dwell. All of worship would revolve around the temple. This temple was only a shadow of another temple, our hearts. Paul draws the connection in 1 Corinthians 3:16–17: “Do you know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is holy, and you are that temple.”
The temple of Solomon would be filled with the presence of God. Now as believers, we are also filled with the Spirit of Christ.
