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.
