An Anointed Life

As God called men to serve as priests, He wanted them to realize that this was no ordinary position. This was serious. They needed to realize that they were being called to be His representatives.

In this position, He was not just interested in their words and actions. Even their garments were consecrated and holy, symbols of God Himself. And each priest was to wash and be cleansed before putting on these garments.

Aaron and his sons were the first to wear these special garments. But these were not personal possessions. They were to be passed down from generation to generation. Each man would be reminded of his heritage and his special responsibility to represent God.

Sadly, throughout the years, some failed to take these responsibilities seriously. We think of the sons of Eli, “worthless men” who used their position for their own benefit (1 Samuel 2:12-17).

These same principles apply today to every part of our lives. God gives each person unique gifts and resources. We all have a special calling to serve Him. We are to remember that He blesses us that we might bless others. And He calls us to be good stewards of His gifts.

Remember that you are God’s servant. Remember His special calling for you. Commit your life to fulfill this calling. Seek to serve Him faithfully with the resources He gives you. And seek to bring Him glory!
