Be Holy For I Am Holy

 

 

 

 

 

 

Holiness Is Not an Option
 

 

 

 

But just as He who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; or it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”
Peter 1:15-16
Holiness is sanctification and separation unto God-which is what we are called to as believers.
Preachers of old like John Wesley knew that holiness was a command and not an option. They lived their lives in humble dedication to God. They served God, worked tirelessly, studied God’s Word diligently and prayed without ceasing. Psalms 65:4 says, “Blessed are those you choose and bring near to live in your courts! We are filled with the good things of your house, of your holy temple.”
Today many of the “successful” churches thrive on flowery sermons designed to appeal to intellectualism or materialism. They neglect talking about self-control, discipline or a life of holiness. The truth is that personal discipline and holiness before God go hand in hand.
In Leviticus 19:2 God says, “‘Be holy because I, the Lord your God, Am holy.” What does that mean? Your life should be one of diligent Bible study, daily communication with God through prayer, fasting and service. As you do this, you will be set apart to be used by God.
