Jehovah Mekoddishkem: The Lord Who Sanctifies
In the vast tapestry of the divine names and attributes of God, one name stands out as a profound reminder of His continuous work in our lives – Jehovah Mekoddishkem. This name, found in the Old Testament, reveals God as the One who sanctifies us, setting us apart for a purpose and calling us to a life of holiness. In this blog post, we will dive into the significance of Jehovah Mekoddishkem and how it shapes our understanding of God's holiness and our own sanctification journey.
The Meaning of Jehovah Mekoddishkem:
Jehovah, a name often used to refer to God, signifies the existing One, the One who is, who exists, who becomes, and who becomes known. It portrays a God who reveals Himself unceasingly throughout Scripture, desiring an intimate and personal relationship with us. Mekoddishkem, sometimes translated as Mekadesh, emphasizes God's role as the Lord who sanctifies us.
Sanctification—Separation and Dedication:
Sanctification, as highlighted by Jehovah Mekoddishkem, involves both separation from anything that defiles us and a dedicated commitment to everything that makes us holy. It is not an instantaneous event but rather a lifelong process. Leviticus 11:44a states, "For I am the Lord your God [Jehovah Mekoddishkem]. Consecrate yourselves therefore, and be holy, for I am holy." This process entails clinging to the holy and turning away from the unholy aspects of our lives, seeking to align ourselves with God's holiness.
Peter's Plea for Holiness:
In his letter to the early Christians, Peter urged believers to embrace holiness. He quoted from Leviticus 11 and emphasized the importance of holiness in a believer's life. In 1 Peter 1:15-16, he writes, "But as He Who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct since it is written, 'You shall be holy, for I am holy.'" Peter emphasizes holiness in all aspects of our lives, reflecting our calling as God's beloved children.
The Process of Sanctification:
Sanctification, depicted by Jehovah Mekoddishkem, is a unique journey for each individual. What may be an area of struggle for one person might be a point of strength for another. Jehovah Mekoddishkem meets us where we are, providing the guidance and strength needed for our sanctification process.
Salt and Light in a Thirsty World:
Jesus called His followers to be salt and light in the world, impacting those around them for the Gospel's sake and God's glory. Matthew 5:13-16 underscores the importance of living out our faith and holiness for all to see. We are to cling to the holy and turn from the unholy, reflecting the character of Jehovah Mekoddishkem and bringing glory to our Heavenly Father.
Holiness in a Pagan World:
Living a holy life, as exemplified by the standards set in Leviticus 19 and the Ten Commandments, remains relevant for Christians today. In a world that often denies moral absolutes, our values must be firmly anchored in God's unchanging truth. Jehovah Mekoddishkem's holiness sets the standard for our moral values.
Jehovah Mekoddishkem, the God who sanctifies, invites us to embark on a lifelong journey of holiness and separation from the unholy. Understanding God's holiness is essential, as it forms the foundation of our sanctification process. As we progress in our sanctification, we reflect God's holiness to the world, fulfilling our calling as salt and light. May we cling to the holy, turn from the unholy, and walk hand in hand with Jehovah Mekoddishkem on our sanctification journey.
