Good Morning my friends,
Israel had prophets, who spoke to the people on behalf of God. They also had priests, who spoke to God on behalf of the people. In salvation, God calls us to serve Him as priests. Priests are CLOTHED with beautiful garments of salvation. Priests are CONSECRATED, washed with water, anointed with oil; sprinkled with blood. Priests are COMMISSIONED to offer up spiritual sacrifices to The Lord. We offer Him ourselves, our gifts and our praise.
“You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” (1 Peter 2:9)
When Jesus died for you & me He CALLED for us to put all our faith in Him because He CLOTHED us with His crucifixion, He CONSECRATED us with His sinless blood and He COMMISSIONED us to go and spread His love, grace, mercy, & forgiveness to the world..
My friends you might think that you’re not qualified to spread The Gospel but I’m here to tell you that He doesn’t call the equipped but instead He equips the called and if you have invited our Lord & Savior into your heart then you my friend have been CALLED. When you accept Jesus as your personal Savior you are commissioned to go and share your testimony with the lost world and not to sit on your hands and be silent.
“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.” (Romans 12:1)
“I delight greatly in the Lord; my soul rejoices in my God. For he has clothed me with garments of salvation and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness, as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.” (Isaiah 61:10)
MY CHALLENGE PRAYER to YOU… Accept your commission and go spread The Gospel.
I hope you all have a MAGNIFICENT day… Blessings & much love….D
Live YOUR life like it’s your LAST 24!!
