King David was a leader that was attuned with the will of God; he empowered people to participate in the keeping of God’s temple. He put in place gatekeepers (guards of the temple) to preserve the integrity of the worshipers and protect the Temple. Some were treasurers, who ensured that the money collected was put to the right use. Then there were 6,000 Levites were set up as administrators and judges in order to take care of matters pertaining the Temple and the Nation. However, today we have another Leader who has a Temple. Is it possible that you are called to be a Temple worker of this modern temple?
“Also to his son Shemaiah sons were born who ruled over the house of their father, for they were mighty men of valor.” 1 Chronicles 26:6

Our Leader is Jesus and his Temple is the community of believers (2 Cor 3). Yes, we as a church are the Temple of the Living God and Jesus still needs workers today as He needed them in the time of David. That Old Temple’s purpose was to show the World the God of Israel in order for others to come to the Creator–it was light on a hill. In the same way, the Temple of the Lord today is a Light on the hill for all the World for the purpose of preaching the Gospel to ends of the World. More than ever before, people need that Temple to be operating at its best. God needs mighty men/women to become engaged in the work of the Temple. Are you willing to be part of it? Are you willing to work for it? Pray to God so that He can use you in your local church to build up His Temple. You are important to God, and only you can do a job that no one else can. Sign the dotted line and become a Temple Worker, your work will help save souls.
