Set Apart

April 21, 2015

1 Peter 3:15

But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear…

In the margin of my Bible, the word sanctify means to set apart.

So to re-phrase that portion of scripture, it says: But set apart the Lord God in your hearts.

That part really jumped out at me, and made complete sense as I looked back and reflected my own choices as I grew in my walk with Jesus Christ.

Christianity is about a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. In order to grow in that relationship He must be first. That is the greatest commandment according to Jesus. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your mind and all your soul.

How do we do that?

Be setting Him apart. By putting Him first in everything. So that our actions, our thoughts, and our motives do not get entangled with the ways of the world.

Have you set Christ apart in your heart and in your life?

I hope and pray you do!

 

Grace and Peace
