In many vastness of God ministry to serve, we at time are confuse and do not know in real form what is the meaning “to serve” as in the Lord want and performance?
Those working in the Lord’s ministry are they consider as called unto his service? How about those that help out volunteering without an exchange of resources for payment? Is volunteering to sweep and washing the toilet consider as serving to the Lord? How about a Sunday school teacher or an usher at work? What happened to the “unbeliever” that paid to serve in the form of job responsible for building maintenance and upholding operation within the physical church of God? Do we think that it be left alone all those responsibility to the service of the Pastor and church worker that have being ordained and paid to serve in the Kingdom of God? Who will actually claim the glory and reward?
What happened to those that directly and indirectly preparing the food and people to the prayer meeting, acting, music, drama participation and those that help out in security and traffic flow? Is this a voluntary work to help out physically or is it being translate as a spiritual mindset as, “put on the cloak of priesthood” to serve? That is why, “the cloak of priesthood” is being discussed. Are we being call into those respective “priesthood” situation to serve and the responsibility that we volunteered to bear with that convicted accountability? What form of the accountability and the conviction that derive in making, “The cloak of Priesthood” within us comes to reality and practice?
But in reality appointment of the “cloak of priesthood” is invisible and unseen. It is a string line of conceptual ordinance principalities that undermine what is the responsibility that has built in us by our Lord Jesus Christ.
The simple appointment to “the cloak of priesthood” above that is mention even to the first conviction that we gave our life to Jesus Christ as our Lord and personal savior we have activate the obedience to serve. The “cloak of priesthood” responsibility is being automatically being given, anointed and called to obey. This has been given to us as an intention to enhance the light and faith of God. Worship, praising and exaltation to God are the main light in our daily walk and experience with Jesus. Both also magnification in our act of speech character and river outflow in testimony during our pilgrim on this earth. Living in decisions that personifying ways of the commandment that he has given us in the Holy words and Bible as a directive to imitate and follow after Jesus Christ in his glorifying and liberating reason.
Mat 6:8 “Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.”
Evolution and ever-changing to the needs of the children has been and constantly evolving and renewing. Therefore the “cloak of priesthood” is serving as a guide and persevere into the clean example of the Good Shepherd characteristic, with this unpretentious use that our Lord Jesus has earlier taught us to protrude and portrait ourselves into that nature. Therefore we lead and guide as the “Good Shepherd ways” for all the sheep that come to the narrow way and direct them to the trail of righteousness abstain from sin and iniquity (to extend laid down our life). Hence enforcing relationship and creating closeness (one bond of love) between God and fellow citizen in the house of the Father.
Eph 4:3-6 “Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.”
Heb 13:20 “Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant,”
How good is it to see our fellow brethren living in peace and into the joy of the Lord?
So in conclusion, we chosen and called to save and into the holiness of God. We has been ordain and lest take not this promise in vain but we shall follow the commandment of the Lord Jesus Christ all the ways even to the slight details of his words. Let us not take advantages and in certain verse and page uses that in relevant and make a mockery out of the very words of God. Disapproved application at our expenses and requirement and desire to manipulate into our own advantages thus abusing that desire to be the will of God.
Remember we are called and in the “cloak of priesthood” there is also a curse therein. So let us take not God name in vain lest we forsake our soul in the avenue of taking advantages to the ministry of God that has given unto the love for mankind.
Mal 2:1-10 “And now, O ye priests, this commandment is for you. If ye will not hear, and if ye will not lay it to heart, to give glory unto my name, saith the LORD of hosts, I will even send a curse upon you, and I will curse your blessings: yea, I have cursed them already, because ye do not lay it to heart. Behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread dung upon your faces, even the dung of your solemn feasts; and one shall take you away with it. And ye shall know that I have sent this commandment unto you, that my covenant might be with Levi, saith the LORD of hosts. My covenant was with him of life and peace; and I gave them to him for the fear wherewith he feared me, and was afraid before my name. The law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was not found in his lips: he walked with me in peace and equity, and did turn many away from iniquity. For the priest’s lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth: for he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts. But ye are departed out of the way; ye have caused many to stumble at the law; ye have corrupted the covenant of Levi, saith the LORD of hosts.Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people, according as ye have not kept my ways, but have been partial in the law. Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us? why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?”
Therefore we must focus and looking unto our Lord Jesus Christ as an author and finisher of our faith into the transformation of his glory sustaining that one day on the day of resurrection we shall meet our Lord in his fullest statue and glory.
Let us continue encouraging, exalting in Spirit filled and polishing one another as brethren into the adoption of Jesus Christ blood as to us as a family into our Father’s business.
Let us continue to move and emulate into his nature the choice as God wants, ultimately reveal desire and showing the will for us. Let beat the adversary in our steadfast of faith and continuously love the Lord Jesus until we meet him soon.
1Co 15:45 ” And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.”
1Co 15:47 “The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.”
In the beginning there is Adam and so shall he be return and redeem to His rightful dominance!
