1 Peter 2:4-5, 9-10
4 Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious,5 you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 9 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; 10 who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.
The anointing of the Holy Spirit is one that seals us and sets us apart as God’s chosen people. The whole work of the Holy Spirit inside of us is to make us sanctified and holy, in order to raise us up into spiritual houses that can be offered to God. Once I am built up into this spiritual vessel, I will be walking in Christ’s marvelous light and will bring others to the light as well.
How can I live as a sanctified vessel for Christ?
I know that Your will is my complete sanctification. Continue to cleanse me until every part of me is set apart and holy for You, so that I may serve and glorify You all the days of my life.
