Anointing often refers to the power of God or the spirit of God residing in a Christian. To anoint someone/something is to dedicate the person/thing to the service of God. It also means to consecrate or make sacred i.e. in a ceremony (overtly or covertly) that includes pouring/applying oil on the person/thing being consecrated e.g. the ordination of priests. Anointing people and things symbolize the introduction of a divine influence, a holy emanation, spirit or power of God. Unction is a term that is sometimes used interchangeably with anointing.
