TEXT: 1SAMUEL 16:1-13
The inconvenience of our ANOINTING by the HOLY SPIRIT God anoints us with the HOLY SPIRIT to EMPOWER us in our HUMANNESS to BE HIS HOLINESS!
… but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, Be holy, for I am holy.” 1PET. 1:16  
All of the things David was able to DO FOR the Kingdom came out of WHO GOD ANOINTED DAVID TO BE IN the Kingdom! 
I have provided MYSELF a king … 1SAM. 16:1
ROYALY is our divine, God chosen IDENTITY
But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you …  1PET. 2:9
I am what I am BY THE GRACE OF GOD!  1COR. 15:10
    • Anointing required David to give up where he was SUCCESSFUL to be more spiritual!
    • Anointing means RESPONDING to where God is at work & getting involved there!
    • Anointing is God’s SEAL of APPROVAL! So don’t let what somebody else thinks about you keep you from what God calls you to!
    • Anointing EMPOWERS us for the purpose of God’s PLEASURE & the other PERSON!
