t To Do When The Glory Falls :Week we began to con- "What gives house its glory?" many beautiful that can be of those same that are beautiful. But are things really where house gets its glory? I magnificent steeples, and immacu- are wonderful to are not the glory of Israel, the who ever lived [ Jesus), constructed the Lord and it was astounding thing ever temple took over seven years to the temple was the floors and wails made of stone, were covered with wood and ultimately over- laid with gold. This was a mag- nificent structure. However, of all the material wonders this temple possessed, we still haven't uncovered the secret to its glory. The glory of the house does not consist in physical beauty, elite membership, financial soundness, or efficient organi- zation. The glory of the church house can be found in the words "The question addressed today is, how can we get the reality of God's pres- ence back in the house of God.V' of God himself in 2 Chronicles 7:16, "For now have I chosen and sanctified this house, that my name maY be there for ever: and mine eyes and mine heart shall be there perpetually." Two things give the church house its glory, the fact of the presence of God and the reality of the presence of God.

We are reminded of a quote given last week which says, "The constancy of God's pres- ence nothing can change, but the consciousness of God's pres- ence, anything can change." THE QUESTION addressed today is, how can we get the real- ity of God's presence back in the house of God? There are numerous times in the Old Testament where the glory of the Lord filled the house of the Lord. It is from these passages we can learn how to get the glory back in the house. The first passage is found in the book of Exodus chapter forty and verses thirty to thir- ty-five. In verse 34 the glory is real, but the secret is found back in verse 31 where the Bible says, "And Moses and Aaron and his sons washed their hands and their feet thereat." Verse 32 goes on to say as the Lord com- manded. The point is the glory was real because the servants of God were clean and obedient. Many times folks walk into the church house and they are not prepared to worship God. There is unconfessed sin in the lives of God's people, there is disobe- dience to the Word of God, and as a result the Holy Spirit of God is quenched. We must realize that a lost man in the presence of the con- gregation cannot hinder the service, but a child of God with unconfessed sin certainly can. Husbands and wives that are out of sorts with one another, parents and children out of sorts, church members that har- bor grudges, as well as pastors and deacons that are fussing, can hinder the work of the Itoly Spirit. IN MOST CHURCHES an invitation is given at the close of the service to give people an opportunity to make things right with the Lord. Sometinms I believe that the invitatiotx should be given at the beginning of the service so God's people can get right and then the tIolv Spirit will have freedom to d, his work. If our churches are going to experience the glory and power of God again, there must be con- fession of sin on the part of God's children, grudges need to be dropped, gossip needs to be stopped, and forgiveness needs to be given.
