The Unseen Clothes

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

In Exodus 28, the Lord gives instructions concerning the priest’s garments. These instructions covered not only the outer clothes, but the undergarments as well. The undergarments were the most private and secret part of the priestly garments, which no one saw. Thus the Lord required that even their undergarments had to be holy. I Peter 2:9 says that you who are born again are now members of God’s holy priesthood. This Scripture teaches us that God is not just concerned about how we live in front of others, but how we live in private. As a priest of God, the Lord’s holiness, sanctification, and anointing must be the same in your private life as in your public life. You must live as holy in secret as your are in public. Either in the sanctuary or alone with no one seeing you, there are no secrets before the Lord. The holiness of God must permeate every facet of your life, and so much so that you have nothing to hide. Make that your aim. For just as holy as the priest’s breastplate and crown was his holy underwear.

Today’s Mission – Today, make it your aim to be as holy in your private life as in public.

God-Thirsty

Vance Havnerby Vance Havner

As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. Psalm 42:1

There is much in our religious life today that is cheap and superficial. There is plenty of glorified big business, wheels within wheels. Men, methods, money, drives and movements and projects are abundant. But, as in other centuries, there are souls here and there who are sick of all that and whose consuming thirst is to know God. Most people are too busy raising quotas and thinking up slogans to walk with God. It takes time to be holy, but who takes time?

It is to be hoped that a new true mysticism will appear and that in this modern bedlam some saints will emerge whose business will be to know God through His Son by His Spirit. We are out to know everything, but never were we more ignorant of God.

God-thirsty souls! “Now Thee alone I seek!” “He satisfieth the longing soul.”
