Topic: Consecrated For Life [DCLM Daily Manna 25 November 2018 Daily Devotional by Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi]
Text: Numbers 6:1-12 (KJV)
Key Verse: “All the days of his separation he is holy unto the LORD“ (Numbers 6:8).
It is amazing how God demonstrates His love and affinity for fellowship with an earthen vessel like man. Encouraging also is how God would like to pour His Spirit, power and presence into His chosen human vessel. A typical example of this kind of choice and affection is found in Samson, the military judge of Israel. He was consecrated for life as a Nazarite right from the womb by the Almighty God to fight His enemies and deliver Israel from Philistine bondage.
Every consecrated man or woman in Israel observed some strict rules according to the Mosaic Law. Such individuals must not indulge their appetite in any alcoholic beverages (Numbers 1:34). They were required not to shave their hair – a unique look that distinguished them from others and they were not to touch or come close to any dead body no matter how close such might be to them. These rules are visible signs of the Nazarene’s separation and willingness to bear the burden for Jehovah.
Today, we have a perfect example of a truly consecrated life in Jesus, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners and made higher than the heavens (Hebrews 7:26). God calls His children to total consecration in this new dispensation. Attaining the spiritual heights is now possible through the all-sufficient grace of Christ, which we obtain when we accept Him as Lord and Saviour, believe His word and remain connected to Him for a lifetime.
Living a truly consecrated life is the standard experience that God calls every believer into now and always. We cannot afford to fall short of it. We must maintain our consecration in Christ to the uttermost.
Thought For The Day: To be fit for heaven, you must consecrate all to Christ today.
