Holiness

The Bible tells us in Hebrews that without holiness we will not see God.

Hebrews 12:14, “Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord”

How can a sinful person become holy?  We cannot find this state of being holy on our own so this is why we need the resurrecting power of the God resting in our hearts and lives.  To be holy is to truly find God and to obtain our eternal salvation.  To be holy, we must repent and then ask God for his Holy Spirit to live in our hearts.  It is truly a life changing experience.

In 1 Peter 1:13-19 we read, Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:  But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.  And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man's work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear:  Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot”

Holiness is essential to our eternal destination (heaven) and for our way of life while living on earth.  Once we choose to follow God our pathway is brighter and the way is made for us:

Isaiah 35: 8-10 states, And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.  No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there:  And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

Life is still life, but the outlook and destination are much, much brighter when we choose to live Holy through the power of God.
