And these are the garments which they shall make; a breastplate, and an ephod, and a robe, and a broidered coat, a mitre, and a girdle: and they shall make holy garments for Aaron thy brother, and his sons, that he may minister unto me in the priest's office. (Exodus 28:4)
Today's Morsel: When God chose Aaron to be the priest of the temple, he told Moses to make holy garment for Aaron and his son. Why did God want their garment to be holy? Because God is holy and the ministry always represents God in their duties. When a man or woman who say that they representatives of God are not concerned with their attire and how they look, they become a bad representation of who God is. I hear some say that it's not about how you look or what you wear because God looks on the heart. An outward expression of what is in your heart is seen by your attire and the garments you wear. And unkempt appearance is a sure example of a sinful heart. It may not seem that way, but somewhere deep down within is a root of pride and sin that have not be taken care of; and sooner or later, that root will bud and bring forth fruit of its kind. When Peter wrote to the church, "But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light"(1 Peter 2:9), he was letting us know that we are part of a kingly ancestralship and that we needed to represent it well in everything that we do. We must always remember that without holiness shall no man see God(Hebrews 12:14). Holiness always begins with Who's we are and who we are.
Sing: Holy! Holy! Holy! Holy! Holy! Holy! Holy is the Lord, God Almighty, and He's worthy to receive glory, worthy to receive honor, He's worthy to receive all our praise today.
