You must be holy // 11-01-19

“So you must live as God’s obedient children. Don’t slip back into your old ways of living to satisfy your own desires. You didn’t know any better then. But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy.” 1 Peter‬ ‭1:14-15‬ ‭NLT

To be holy means to be set apart for a special purpose, dedicated to God, pure in motive, committed to His will. It’s Jesus who makes me holy, right in God’s sight, by paying the price for my sin, but now my goal is to live for Him, obedient to His command, a witness to His goodness and mercy, and a messenger of His Good News – It’s called being a Christian! Lord, help me to live that life of holiness, so that Your Name would be glorified, your Church edified and this world evangelised through my words and actions, Amen 🙏🏼
