Prayer, praise, and God’s Word all prepare us to give the Holy Spirit to the world around us.
"Each young women’s turn came to go in to King Ahasuerus after she had completed twelve months’ preparation, according to the regulations for the women, for thus were the days of their preparation apportioned; six months with oil of myrrh, and six months with perfumes and preparations for beautifying women."
Let our praise be like the oil of myrrh, and our prayers be like perfumes, and studying God’s Word be preparation and purification.
When we come into His presence, we prepare ourselves with “beauty treatments”, making us more like Jesus and glorious. We let the light of the Lord and His gospel shine in and through us to a world in need. Showing our families and friends a loving, gentle and kind God who cares about them.
“Before the world was created, God had Christ choose us to live with Him and to be His holy, and innocent and loving people. God was kind and decided that Christ would choose us to be God’s own adopted children.”
