SANDALWOOD - ALGUM - WORSHIP
In the time of David sandalwood was used to make instruments of worship such as the harps and lyres. Plainly we can see these are instruments of worship in the natural but spiritually speaking, we have been called to be 'living instruments'. Paul writing to the Romans states, "I urge you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship". Solomon used sandal wood to construct the steps leading up to the Temple. Again, this shows our approach to God which is always through worship.
Our portion in the anointing of the Sandalwood is to become living and holy instruments of worship learning to abide in His presence; making worship a lifestyle and not simply an action.
