“how do we become holy?
how we remain holy?”
This is a post that really spoke volumes to me. Showing we can not earn Gods favour, how holiness is a gift and not something you work towards. I really enjoyed this post and i hope all of you will really enjoy it.Posted by @theworddetective. Thank You.
SCRIPTURE – 1 PETER 1:13-20
Be Holy…How is this even possible?
I have had difficulties over the years just being a decent husband and father to my three kids. How am I supposed to be as HOLY as the One True Living God? I’m just human. I make mistakes, many of them. So does HOLY mean I just need to follow a bunch of rules? A list of things I’m supposed to do and things not to do? Like, be nice to others?
I’m a good person, mostly, so does that make me HOLY? Great questions!
1 Peter 1:15-16 (NIV)…
 But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do;  for it is written: “Be holy because I am holy.”
Peter isn’t introducing a new concept here. He’s repeating a principle laid down by God in the Covenant [See footnote].
