Zechariah 6:12-13. ““‘A Message from GOD -of-the-Angel-Armies. Be alert. We have a man here whose name is Branch. He will branch out from where he is and build the Temple of GOD. Yes, he’s the one. He’ll build the Temple of GOD. Then he’ll assume the role of royalty, take his place on the throne and rule—a priest sitting on the throne!—showing that king and priest can coexist in harmony.’”
The separation of church and state is very important to some but for the Christian there is no such thing. You can’t compartmentalize your life, it has to be wholly lived just as Christ’s was and was wholly given up. We are called to be a royal priesthood (1 Peter 2:9) in the order of Christ(John 15:5). It’s simple; you in or out?
Think About This
Are you a different person in different places? You need to be consistent in character. Use Christ as your example.
Dear Lord, May I be like You. In Jesus name I pray. Amen
