Anointed to serve

Exodus 40:15 Anoint them just as you anointed their father, so they may  serve me as

Exodus 28:40-41 And for Aaron’s sons thou shalt make coats, and thou shalt make for them girdles, and bonnets shalt thou make for them, for glory and for beauty. And thou shalt put them upon Aaron thy brother, and his sons with him; and shalt anoint them, and consecrate them, and sanctify them, that they may minister unto me in the priest’s office.

Psalm 23:5-6 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

Isaiah 10:27 And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.

Mark 10:45 For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister (serve), and to give his life a ransom for many.

Luke 4:18-19 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power (ability), after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

1 Corinthians 12:4-6 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit- the third person of the triune God, the Holy Spirit, coequal, coeternal with the Father and the Son:

•  sometimes referred to in a way which emphasises his personality and character (the “Holy” Spirit)

•  sometimes referred to in a way which emphasises his work and power (the Spirit of “Truth”)

•  never referred to as a depersonalised force.

And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.
