Leviticus 20:26 You are to be holy to me because I, the LORD, am holy, and I have set you apart from the nations to be my own.
O Lord, you have consecrated me, setting me apart to live for you. Yet I don’t always do that. Instead I often live for me. Often I fail to separate myself from the world around me that I not only live in the world, but I live like the world, indulging my sinful flesh. But you have consecrated me. You have set me apart as your dear child. You have declared me holy through the perfect life and innocent death of Christ. Empower me by this truth that each day I separate myself from the ways of the world and live for you. For I am yours. You are mine. May each day of my life reflect that truth. Amen.
