A Person of Life

1
When I first believed, and His life I received,
The seed was sown into me.
Now this seed must grow, and this zoe life flow
As on to maturity.
  Am I a person of life?
Do I experience life?
Does my living bear the issues of life?
Good trees bear good fruit;
Healthy plant, healthy root;
Oh Lord! The ground in my heart!
2
We know that life’s seed is growing indeed
When fruits of life are expressed
Such as virtues of joy, peace, faithfulness, love.
Does my daily life pass the test?
3
When these virtues show others surely will know
The beauty of life will shine,
And the gospel word of life will be heard
Bringing many to know life divine!
4
Lord grant me today, a new start in this way.
A person of life I would be—
Just expressing You in all that I do.
Oh may this life flow out of me!

What are the priestly robes? They are the manifestation of Christ. Christ manifested upon you is the robe of the priest. What the priests eat represents Christ, what they wear represents Christ, and all their living represents Christ. To be a priest you must live in Christ and serve with Christ. When you teach in school, you teach in Christ; when you do business, you do business in Christ; when you take care of your home, you do it in Christ. You are in the robe of a priest.

If you are a priest, there is something about you that is not ordinary; you have distinct and distinguishing characteristics. You are equipped with Christ; you are adorned with Christ; Christ is your robe. You must experience Christ in such a way; then you will be a priest. Whatever you handle, you will handle with Christ; whatever you do, you will do with Christ. You will manifest Christ. If you are a sister, and you are handling Christ all the day, think how much you will be able to minister to the Lord. You will help people to know Christ; you will minister Christ to your family. When you come to the meetings, you will be able to minister many things. Whether you clean or arrange the seats or kneel down with two or three other sisters to pray for the meeting, it is all a ministry, a ministry fulfilled in Christ, with Christ, and by Christ.
