Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. Hebrews 12:14
What exactly does it mean to be holy? The Bing online dictionary says it is to "be dedicated or consecrated to God or a religious purpose; sacred." Many places in the word of God it refers to being holy. We as believers are to pursue it, or go after it. There is no escaping the fact that God wants His followers to walk in holiness or have holy behavior.
Lately allot of compromise has been done and you don't hear the word 'holy' in many circles. Still we are to pursue it and not a politically correct version of a watered down Bible. God is God and His word never changes. 1 Peter 1:16 says "Be Holy for I am Holy."
Is your life one of holiness or running away from what you know to be the truth? Is your heart right with God? Do you love your neighbor as yourself? Really? Just some points to think about.
PRAYER: Father there have been times when I have acted less than holy and I ask forgiveness. I know to be Holy is not referring to me chanting or wearing robes but living a lifestyle pleasing to you. Keep me from stumbling Lord. In Jesus' name. Amen.
