This morning as I was reading through the book of Exodus, I noticed something that caught my attention. In describing the clothing that the priests were required to wear I cam across this verse, Exodus 39:30, “They made the plate of the holy crown of pure gold, and wrote on it an inscription, like the engraving of a signet, “Holy to the LORD.” This got me thinking. We as believers may not be wearing a crown of gold on our heads that says Holy to the Lord, but because of the sacrifice of Christ we are declared Holy to the Lord.
I know for myself, one of the last things that I would describe myself as is holy. There are so many times that I stumble and fall and realize how much I need a savior. I looked at the definition of the word holy in Websters dictionary: “devoted entirely to the deity or the work of the deity.” Now is this not true, that as believers our lives should be lived in a way that meets this definition.
I encourage you, and myself to remember this thought, that we are set apart by God to work for Him. I have to constantly remind myself that my boss is not a man, but is God. I continue to pray that God would work in me, that when I have to give an account to Him that I will hear, ‘Well done my good and faithful servant.’
I would appreciate your prayers that God would continue to work in my life and clean out the rotten fruit from within my life, and that I would not get distracted from the true goal of serving Him.
