Holiness to the Lord

As I finished reading the book of Exodus this morning, this verse stood out to me, and the following commentary also stood out as significant.  May we each endeavor to live our lives in righteousness and holiness for the glory of our Lord!

“And they made the plate of the holy crown of pure gold, and wrote upon it a writing, like to the engravings of a signet, HOLINESS TO THE LORD.”  - Exodus 39:30

 And (lastly) he crowned himself with holiness to the Lord, consecrating his whole undertaking to the honour of his Father's holiness: now consider how great this man is.  True believers are spiritual priests. The clean linen with which all their clothes of service must be made is the righteousness of saints (Rev_19:8), and Holiness to the Lord must be so written upon their foreheads that all who converse with them may see, and say, that they bear the image of God's holiness, and are devoted to the praise of it.
- Matthew Henry’s Commentary
