You don’t have to guess and fake it
1Chronicles 13-15 / 1Thessalonians 1-2
15:13 Because you Levites did not carry the Ark the first time, the anger of the LORD our God burst out against us. We failed to ask God how to move it in the proper way.
1:6-7 So you received the message with joy from the Holy Spirit in spite of the severe suffering it brought you. In this way, you imitated both us and the Lord. As a result, you yourselves became an example to all the Christians in Greece.
OT Flash Points
Before you do something that seems right, check the instructions
Doing the right thing the wrong way will always result in disappointment
But be aware, even when you do the right thing the right way those closest to you may not appreciate it
NT Flash Points
The Ark, in effect, distributed to the Body, causes the saints to be the joy and crown of the LORD
1Peter 2:9 – by what right?
By the atonement
Intercede – pour out
Trust the atonement and go out from that basis
