The Priestly Bath

20 Jan

The Prieatly Bath…

The priests of God in the Old Testament. In order to enter the priesthood, they had to take off their old garments and take a holy bath. After being cleansed in the ritual bath, they were then given the garments of the priest to minister unto the Lord.

You are called by God for a great purpose. So you too must take off the old garments; put away your old ways, old ideas and old habits and be willing to put on the new in God, for we were created in His image.

You can’t do what God wants you to do unless you are willing to go through the process of renewing yourself in the things of God. Your ministry is waiting, your priesthood is waiting; it’s calling you.

In order to serve as a priest in the service of God, your garments are important. Take off the old, put on the new. Dare to let the past go and get on with fulfilling your calling. Ring out the old and ring in the new.

 No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment, for the patch will pull away from the garment, making the tear worse. Neither do people pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst; the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved. Matthew 9:16-17

Live in a spirit of renewal. Prepare yourself to be used for great and mighty things. Put off the old clothes that hinder your calling and step into the new.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
