Distinctives Part III - To Worship in His Temple
Ezekiel's eschatological vision of the Temple helps us understand not only the centrality of the Triune God but also our own place in God's plan. Jesus is the Temple of God and all renewal proceeds forth from His throne. Because of this all those in Him, whether individual believers or, more pervasively in the NT, the Church, are also called the Temple. Since the Church is the Temple of God, Ezekiels helps us understand that God has chosen to link the spread of His Word and Spirit with the labors of the Church and also that the primary responsibility of the Church, like the Temple, is to worship the Living God.
