THEME: ANOINTING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
Exodus 28:41 NKJV
“So you shall put them on Aaron your brother and on his sons with him. You shall anoint them, consecrate them, and sanctify them, that they may minister to Me as priests.”
-Moses was instructed by God to consecrate Aaron and his sons. Moses took the anointing oil, and anointed the tabernacle and all that was in it and consecrated them. He sprinkled some of it on the altar seven times, anointed the altar and all its utensils, and the laver and its base, to consecrate them. He poured some of the anointing oil on Aaron’s head and anointed him, to consecrate him. Then Moses brought Aaron’s sons and put tunics on them, girded them with sashes, and put hats on them, as the Lord had commanded Moses (Leviticus 8:6-13). Moses anointed Aaron and his children to make them holy before our Holy God. He has anointed us to be priests to Him and called us to accomplish the work that He has called us to do. He calls us to be vessels of honor and follow His will and statutes as we rely on His precious blood for cleansing and purification. Jesus our great High Priest who has passed through the heavens sympathize with our weaknesses and grants us His grace and mercy in times of need (Hebrews 4:14-16).
Almighty Heavenly Father, we bow before Your throne of grace this day with humble adoration and thanksgiving in our hearts. Saying that You are the one that we love that we adore and that we need. Father, we thank You for all You have done for us and all You have given for us. Thank You for Your good plans for us, and Your loving kindness and mercies You have towards us. We pray that You shall wash us with Your precious blood Jesus and sanctify us from all our sins. May You forgive us where we have not pleased You and purify us. We pray that You will anoint us afresh by Your Holy Spirit and consecrate us for Your service, that we may serve You Lord effectively and by the power of Your Holy Spirit just as You did to Aaron and his sons. May You make us vessels of honor by Your power and grace dear Heavenly Father. We honor You Lord and bless Your holy name, in Jesus name we pray believing and trusting. Amen
