Holiness – what it’s all about… Why we need it and how we get it… this side of Heaven.
Holiness or sanctification is being separated by God, for God, from sin, unto a holy life. We are set apart – consecrated – for God’s purposes.
It is positional – we are in Christ. And it is practical – it impacts our daily choices of life. It is also progressive – in that we are being transformed, changed into His own image, from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
Holiness is positive – in that it is Christlikeness. It motivates us to please our Lord. We are exhorted to it.
God has two abodes – the holy heaven and a holy heart.
Holiness is a gift. Christ is made unto us our sanctification; our holiness. Holiness is by the Word, by the Blood of Christ, by His Spirit, and by our yielding to God.
May the Lord grant us this desire, that we make this decision, to seek after Him this side of Heaven. To die to sin and to walk in newness of life.
