—Haggai 2:11-14 (NASB)
What might change in your personal approach to worship if one of your chief concerns was to do so while striving to be holy? What about the way your local church comes together corporately? One of the things Old Testament Believers had to do was evaluate every activity, person, and thing as to its state of holiness and either reject that which was polluted by sin, or submit it to God’s Word and ways to make it acceptable according to His standards of holiness. The process is called “consecration”. And I find myself wondering more and more what has happened to our sensitivity to the quality of holiness of our possessions, relationships, and worship.
