Separated…

Hebrews 5:1 says, “For every high priest is taken from among men.” The Levites were taken from Israel. The priests, or kohanim, were taken from the Levites.

The High Priest was taken from the priests. Each was taken and was separated and that was key for their calling. The word holy, “kadosh” in Hebrew, implies being separated.

The Bible says if you’re “born again” you’re now a priest. That means you’re also taken from among men, not just chosen but separated.

That is key. If you want to fulfill your calling, you have to be separated. Not so much from specific people, though it can mean that, but from sin, the world, carnality and the flesh.

In the New Covenant, a priest could only fulfill his or her calling by separating oneself. You, as God’s priest, church, in the Bible means the called-out one, separated.

Fulfill your calling! Doors are going to open! Separate from the sin. Separate from the world. Separate from whatever you have to separate from.

Take yourself from among men that you may enter the presence of God. You’re called to be holy, “kadosh”, separated – a priest unto God taken from among men.

What if he did this to make the riches of his glory known to the objects of his mercy, whom he prepared in advance for glory— Romans 9:23

What has hindered or even distracted you from God’s calling on your life? Come out from that today.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
