back into civvies

Ezekiel 42:13-14 (JDV)

Ezekiel 42:13 Then the man said to me, “The northern and southern chambers that face the courtyard are the devoted chambers where the priests who approach Yahveh will eat the most devoted offerings. There they will deposit the most devoted offerings ā€“ the grain offerings, failure offerings, and guilt offerings ā€“ for the place is devoted.
Ezekiel 42:14 Once the priests have entered, they are not to go out from the devoted area to the outer court until they have removed the clothes they minister in, for these are devoted. They are to put on other clothes before they approach the public area.”

The special uniform of the priests is a reminder of the sacredness of their task. If they were to stay fitted in that uniform while mingling among the crowds, they might forget how special their ministry is — and how sacred their obligation is.

Thus, they are told to change back into their “civvies” before leaving the temple courts.

How do you protect the sacredness of your time with God?
