There are many different ideas as to what holiness is: not going to the movies, going to church, not dancing, not being part of the world, etc. But the Hebrew word for holy is kadosh. From that same word comes the word kiddushin, the Hebrew betrothal ceremony. The bridegroom and bride share a cup of wine together, sealing their pledge and consecration to each other. Messiah is the Bridegroom of our soul. We’re in the time called the kiddushin, headed to the marriage supper of the Lamb. He pledged Himself to us and He shares the cup of wine as in communion, just like the bride and groom share the cup of pledging. True holiness is kiddushin- to be pledged to Messiah, devoted to Him, doing everything for Him because of what He did for you. Messiah gave you His kiddushin; His devotion and pledge and His all, His everything for you so that you would do the same. It’s a ll about love— the love of the bride for the Bridegroom and the Bridegroom for the bride. That’s kiddushin and that’s what holiness is really all about.
Today’s Mission – Today, seek true holiness. Seek the kiddushin. Receive in your heart the pledge of the Bridegroom and give to the Bridegroom the pledge of your heart.
