Holy Or Common

Read Ezekiel 44:1 through 46:24

At a church harvest festival, rain chased the activities into the building. Games, food, and a petting zoo found new locations throughout the church’s hallways and rooms. During the evening, some of the animals soiled the floor.

Training the animals to respect the church property takes time and effort. For a believer, growing in holiness takes time and effort as well.

‘“They are to teach my people the difference between the holy and the common and show them how to distinguish between the unclean and the clean’” (Ezekiel 44:23).

The Holy Spirit gives Christians the ability to determine what is holy. This is a process. God does not download every life situation and its proper response into a believer’s mind. Through godly teaching and a searching of the Word, understanding grows. An important step in this process is identity. A believer must recognize that he or she is Christ’s holy dwelling place and live accordingly.

Thought for Today: Discern what is holy. Send the common out to the barn.
