An Invitation to Holiness


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 (1Pt. 1:15-16).

Many Christians believe in misconceptions about holiness rather than in its possibility, as God commanded us. We think that holiness is the preserve of a few elite spiritual leaders, that it is obtainable only after death, and that it is an impossible lifestyle on earth that restricts and cuts on freedom. Satan delights in perpetuating such erroneous views to keep us away from desiring holiness. God will never command us to do anything impossible for us to do. Besides, He always makes available all resources to enable us to do His will. Holiness means to be separated and set apart. Setting anything apart does not make it holy; it must be devoted to God to be holy. Herein lies the problem with many Christians who follow Christ but are unwilling to dedicate themselves to the Lord. God wants us to be holy like He is, not by our efforts but through His impartation. I am the Lord, who makes you holy (Lev. 20:8b).
