“When the priests leave the sanctuary, they must not go directly to the outer courtyard. They must first take off the clothes they wore while ministering, because these clothes are holy. They must put on other clothes before entering the parts of the building complex open to the public.”
As a product of a non-denominational church that boomed on the heels of Keith Green’s Jesusfreak movement, I find myself on the more casual side of a relationship with the Lord.
Prayer can happen anywhere, church gatherings are casual and ministry can be just about anything you want it to be as long as you assure everyone you were “called” into it. I don’t think any of this is bad, it just is. But it’s also just one side of the coin.
Don’t forget that God is holy. The ground where we meet with him is holy ground. The clothes one wears in the sanctuary are holy clothes. Clothes matter.
What feels like a religious routine to you, but might hold significance to the Lord?
