1 Peter 1:15
But because the God who called you is holy, you must be holy in every aspect of your life.
Holiness is not something you hear a lot about today, but it has never changed with God. One of the biggest problems we see today that is leading many believers down a deceptive path is the lack of holiness. As the above verse clearly teaches, God expects us to be holy in every aspect of our life.
What does this actually mean? Vines expository dictionary gives us a better understanding of this word. It defines holy as “godlikeness”. Simply put, we should live like our God, set apart from a lifestyle of worldly living. Living a life like God is living a life of liberty from the bondage that sin leads us into.
Sin will take you farther than you want to go, keep you longer then you want to stay, and cost you more than you want to pay. Don’t fall for the lie that since you are saved by grace it doesn’t matter if you sin. It does matter. We are not sinners saved by grace, we were once sinners, but we are now a new creation in Christ Jesus. As Romans 6 says should we who have died to sin live any longer in sin? Certainly not. Choose to live the new life you have been given through Christ Jesus.
