The Scripture tells the Believer to be holy just as God is Holy. The Word Holy in this case means that we are to open up our heart and mind to godly characteristics and put them into practice.
We must be concerned about growing in ways that matures our heart and mind towards godly attitudes that are pleasing to God, others and ourselves.
Take time to access how you are doing in your desire to accomplish holiness in your actions. Is my mind and heart becoming more pure before God?
If we have a strong craving for and a delight in God’s Word, we will see spiritual growth. The Word is like water as it will cleanse our mind and heart.
When we see and feel growth, rejoice and go for more. Our progress should put joy in our heart and some enthusiasm in our step if we see some changes in our actions
The more we associate with a person, the more we learn from them and if this person is Jesus, then we will want to pattern our conduct after His.
As we walk the walk, closer and closer to Him, we can experience more of His love, His ways, His words, His nature, His actions, His grace, His mercy, His holiness, His presence, His joy, and His peace, Amen.
“Obey God because you are his children; don’t slip back into your old ways-doing evil because you knew no better. But be holy now in everything you do, just as the Lord is holy, who invited you to be his child. He himself has said, you must be holy, for I am holy” (1 Peter 1:14-16 LB).
