I'm going to post in this thread occasionally a different scripture that I am reading for the day.
Todays scripture is 1 Peter 1:16
Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
I like to think holy and pure are pretty similar. Holy reminds me of movies where you scare away the demons with your purity and holiness. They
shrink back from the light.
What really is holiness. I'm not to sure. It's pretty difficult to be holy in an evil world. There's mans holiness and there's Gods holiness.
It says be holy for I am holy so if God's actually real then he should provide the power, will, way and desire to achieve such things.
But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; This is 1 Peter 1:15 This scripture is similar to one we are looking at.
It will take practice. I'll forget about it tomorrow. But for now I desire to be holy as can be obtained. Holy ties in with love. If you don't
have love you can't be holy.
Suffering can dampen love and turn love cold and make you bitter. Being holy means fighting impurities I think. You have to fight to be holy but it
will defend and pay for itself in many way. Do you hide your holiness? Will others attack you because of it?
God says be holy for I am holy. What is your definition of Holy? What is the power of holy? What can it do?
So how do you know your holy? When is the AHA momment?
