[The Glory Unveiled]
But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; ( 1 Peter 2:9 NKJV)
God usually draws people unto Himself, to be with Him. And it is our being with Him for long that makes us look like Him. For instance, it was Moses’ long stay with God on the mountain that left an imprint of God on him—the glory of God. God loves intimacy, and intimacy to us is separation unto God. All the adjectives used in our verse of Scripture suggest uniqueness, distinctiveness and separation. The last part of the Scripture explains why such descriptive words are used; thus we have been called out of darkness into God’s marvelous light—separated from darkness into light. The Believer cannot be any of the descriptions above unless that individual has been separated unto God. In our walk with God we must remain with God. No one can be with God and the devil and his world system at the same time; such people are usually actually with the devil. Adam and Eve, for instance lost whatever they were entitled to because they didn’t remain separated unto God. They had opened the door of intimacy to another entity, the devil. But the second Adam, Jesus at every point in His journey remained separated unto God. He did everything He did because He saw His Father do it. We cannot bring glory to God except we remain separated unto God in our walk with Him. Remain separated to God.
Prayer_Bead: Invincible God, source of all lives and sustainer of all things. Through your grace and love, I am separated unto you and I live for the praise of your name.
