Spiritual Strength For Each Day

“And thou shalt make a plate of pure gold, and grave upon it, like the engravings of a signet, HOLINESS TO THE LORD” (Exodus 28:36).

Here we have a moving chapter about separation. The Lord set Moses apart for holy service. If you read through this chapter, you will be gripped by the earnestness of the priesthood. But now, in the new covenant, every born-again believer is a king and a priest, “…Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, and hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever” (Revelation 1:5-6). If we look at the Church today, however, we see a terrible vacuum before our eyes. Many are converted, and that is all. “…Ye turned to God” (1 Thessalonians 1:9)—this is redemption from the slavery of Egypt, the slavery of sin. But where is the solemn earnestness, the separation for service? What was the goal and climax of the service? Were the Levites priests for the sake of the priesthood? Did their service have a goal in itself? By no means! It was the means to the goal, “Holiness unto the Lord!” Such a person gives himself to the Lord and becomes His complete possession.
