The people of God had been freed from Egyptian bondage after 400 years of slavery. Moses has been instructed to take an offering from all those with a “willing heart” in order to build a tabernacle.
1. Massive needs prepare the way for miraculous provisions. Before there was ever a miracle, there was a need for a miracle.
2. Our hearts must be mightily stirred for the work of God. Likewise, the Israelites responded by giving many of their valuable possessions to the offering.
3. Proper ownership leads to sacrificial stewardship involved in the work of Christ. People gave so much that Moses had to cut off the offering.
4. Abundance is the overflow of God’s faithfulness. God is going to show Himself magnificent.
