Zechariah 14:20 -- On Constant Remembrance

"In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, Holiness unto the Lord; and the pots in the Lord’s house shall be like the bowls before the altar."
Zechariah 14:20


This chapter is talking about the Second Coming, and this particular verse is from after the event itself, talking about what things will be like.  I enjoy the detail of the bells of the horses and the pots in the city (see also verse 21) saying or representing holiness to the Lord.  To me, this illustrates the unity and purpose that we will all have in that day... everything dedicated to our God.  In that day likely because he has saved us, but why couldn't it also be now, because he has saved us, and will continue to save us?

Bells and pots are symbols of a constant remembrance of God, and that is something that we could also use in our lives.  The more our thoughts and actions and environments are dedicated to the Lord, the closer we can come to him.  We don't usually think of mundane things like bells and pots being part of our worship, but potentially everything can be, if we find ways to dedicate it to the Lord.

Today, let's think about ways that we can dedicate our lives, our things, and our communication to the Lord, and let's use everything in a more focused way to assist the Lord in his work and also bring his Spirit into our lives and the lives of the people around us.
