The Tabernacle and the entire sacrificial system showed the people that God loved them and wanted to be with them. But it showed them that He was not like them. One man, one day a year, in great dread represented all Israel to God. But the beauty of the story is that one man, one day a year, in great dread, represented all of Israel to God all because God Himself made a way. God does the work of redemption and salvation. The same truth applies today. God does the work of making a way for His people to be with him. Redemption and salvation cannot depend on man. We need God’s work.
