We have been predestined and called of God out of darkness and into the Kingdom of His dear Son Jesus Christ who loved us and gave Himself for us. ( Col 1:13)
With these words of a reminder of the great privilege that all born again by the Spirit of God enjoy, let me welcome all to the month of consecration and sanctification.
We have been consecrated, sanctified and set apart for use by our God who is holy. (1 Pet 1:15-16) It is incumbent on us, bestowed such grace of salvation and consecration by God to reciprocate this noble divine gesture by presenting ourselves to god as holy vessels fit for the master’s use through living a life of daily cleansing and purification. (Rom 12:1-2)
This purification on our part, entails ensuring we flee from youthful lusts, but follow righteousness, faith, charity, peace with them that call on the Lord out of a pure heart. (2 Tim 2:22)
It is a lifelong process of self cleansing by the blood of Jesus and drawing nearer to God through prayer, fellowship with brethren, reading and practicing of the word of God. It would also include sharing our faith with the unsaved through evangelism and just being good ambassadors of the Kingdom of God wherever we are.
May the Lord God make us such a sweet aroma of Christ everywhere we go that we may touch lives for good for Christ always.
