  3. Scripture
    1. Exodus 31:13
    2. Eternal One: Speak to the Israelites and tell them, “You must be careful to observe My Sabbaths. For the Sabbath Day serves as a sign between Me and you for all generations, so that you will know I am the Eternal One who has set you apart from all the other nations.
  4. Devotional
    1. Jehovah-Maccadeshem, the Lord who makes you holy
      1. The King James translates this name, the Lord, who sanctifies [sanctifieth] you.
      2. NIV and several more modern translations, the Lord, who makes you holy.
      3. Easy to Read version, says, the Lord, who makes you his special people.
      4. We just read from The Voice, the Eternal One who has set you apart.
    2. All have the same meaning, sanctify, set apart for sacred use, special people, holy, separate.
      1. The God we serve sets apart from the world
      2. He makes us different, special, sacred for His use
      3. He sets apart for His special use
    3. Today, everyone wants to be unique
      1. It’s interesting because everyone who seems to want to be unique looks and acts just alike in the world
      2. Hippie movement, Gothic look, whatever fashion the world thinks sets you apart all look and act alike in their attempt to be special
      3. Doesn’t bring happiness because those attempts to form into what the world wants doesn’t satisfy, doesn’t fit the purpose for which we are individually created
    4. Set apart for God’s purpose
      1. God gives unique skills, talents especially designed for the purpose He has for you
      2. Created you to fulfill a specific purpose within the scope of His will
      3. His will, that all will come to know Him as their personal Lord and Savior
      4. Uses people to carry out His will and fulfill His ultimate purpose
      5. Sets us apart to accomplish that mission
      6. Does He need us? No. Will He use us? Yes, if we let Him.
    5. Jehovah - Maccaddeshem, the Lord who sanctifies you, who makes you holy, who sets you apart from the world. He is the God we serve.
