And Solomon . . . came to Jerusalem, and stood before the ark of the covenant of Jehovah, and offered up burnt-offerings, and offered peace-offerings. 1 Kings 3.15.  

Before the Lord had appeared to him, Solomon did not realize or sense the significance of the ark; but once he experienced the Lord’s appearance, he became aware of the preciousness of the presence of the Lord over and above all other things. With the result that he immediately returned to Jerusalem and offered sacrifices before the ark of Jehovah. In Gibeon, Solomon had only offered burntofferings; but now he offered burnt-offerings and peace-offerings and made a feast for all his servants. Oh, to worship before God is true worship, to commune with God is true communion, and to rejoice in God’s presence is true joy. This is what Solomon had experienced. And after Solomon had built the holy temple, he placed the ark in it. And the ark became the center of the holy temple.
