Based on: Luke 19:28–40
Take a look at this building. Look at how it was made. Do you see that curved ceiling? It would have been so much easier and cheaper to make it a slanted ceiling that followed the pitch of the roof, but think about how that curved ceiling reflects your voices as you praise God with your songs in with your spoken words. The people who built and designed this building were thinking about praising God. Look at what else they did. As you walk around the building do you see all the stone that was laid as a foundation for this building? And all the brick that was laid on top of it? They intended to praise God in this building for many years. Look at how the pews are gently curved so that no matter where you sit your body is facing a little more directly toward the baptismal font and the altar and the lectern and the pulpit. The pews are curved to focus your attention on those things that God uses to give you and bring you his grace. As you can imagine it would be cheaper to build straight pews. Also take a look at the windows. Each one is a reminder of one of the truths of God’s word.
