It was a beautiful thing the Lord had done, to place the Tabernacle among His people. A place of reconcilia- tion for all Israel to see, no matter where they encamped. Whether on the north, south, east or west, the way of reconciliation was before all the people. This is true today for all those that grow up under a faithful gospel ministry. Rich as this privilege is, we know that it is not enough. The people had to come to the tabernacle, bringing a sacrifice, confessing their sins.
