We’re not made for mixture. We’re set apart for one thing–either carnal living or Kingdom living. What’s your substance?
Lately, I’ve been focusing on consecration. I’ve also been meditating on the concept of being set apart.
What does that really mean?
A vessel that is set apart for something can only be used for the one thing it was created for. It cannot be used for any other activity or substance.
We, as humans are not made for mixture. We were all created for a specific purpose. And that specific purpose is to know God and have a relationship with Him. Every person. Every one. Not just the goodie two-shoes. Not the brown nosers. Not the moral people. Not the religious stiffs. Everybody was created with an inward desire for God.
Granted, a lot of folks deny that desire. In fact, they often pervert that desire.
I’ve been challenging myself and also those around me in the area of mixture. I’m looking at the source of sediment in my life. I’m tracking any trace of pollutant in my life’s water. I’m exposing any areas of contamination and cleansing them. I want to be clean, pure, consecrated, sanctified and SET APART in every area.
I need to be set apart for God in my thought life, the way I dress, the things I say, the stuff I watch, the books I read, and the music I listen to.
Are you set apart for living for the Kingdom of God or for carnal, worldly living? Are you made of mixture? What is your substance? Are you purified or polluted?

Challenging post linds.. and yet it’s also encouraging. It can get a little annoying to be labeled as too different in comparison to ‘everyone else’, but it’s really a rather great thing considering we’re not of this world. so it’s really a compliment whenever we’re said to be abnormal haha.. 😉
