Ye Shall be Holy

We often are reminded to be holy but what does that mean and how do we become holy?

holiness Lev 20a

Lev 20 -23  The theme of Leviticus is holiness. Over and over the Lord spoke to Moses saying ‘I am the Lord,” You are to be holy. How can we know holiness? We know it through spending time in God’s Word every day. It is our guide to holiness, the holiness of God. Without His Word, how would we know His character, His ways, His standards?

And how do we learn about Him? How do we learn about our own holiness apart from the Word? The Word, that is “every scripture is inspired by God and useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,  that the person dedicated to God may be capable and equipped for every good work”

Think about it this way: “The Father gives you to the Son, the Son gives you to the Holy Ghost, the Holy Ghost gives you back to the Son changed and sanctified. Sanctified, but still a poor sinner. And the Son cleanses you with His blood, and clothes you with His own righteousness, and gives you back to the Father, through Him and in Him holy, holy enough for heaven, holy enough to stand in God’s holy presence” [Jas Vaughan, M. A.]
