Devotion 3-23-24 Psalm 96:9- "Worship the Lord in holy attire; Tremble before Him, all the earth." We know we are to worship the Lord; but what is "in holy attire?" The Old Testament priests had special clothing they put on when they entered the temple to minister before God. They washed and changed clothes before entering. What is the New Testament equivalent? We no longer require special priests; we no longer need special outward clothing. Jesus satisfied every part of the sacrificial system in His life, death, and resurrection. He alone became our high priest; there is no other. Hebrews 2:17- "Therefore, He had to be made like His brethren in all things, so that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people." But what about "attire." "Holy attire" translates "in the beauty of holiness." This means an inward beauty, a holiness, a set asideness for God alone. Salvation allows our sins to be forgiven. But only as we fully enter into a holy relationship with God do we become clothed "in the beauty of holiness." Only as we intentionally say to God, "I am Yours, I belong to You, I will be Your person forever. My heart is set on You, take me for Your purposes." Only then are we clothed in holiness. This can never be a go to church on Sunday and go through the rituals alone. It cannot be a never go anywhere to worship God situation. It must be a total giving of yourself to God, for His purposes, every single day. You become His. You belong to God. Only then will you be clothed in holy attire from the inside out. The beauty of holiness will show through as a witness of and to God's love!
