Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.Hebrews 12:14
Holy means we are separate from the sinful world, but we seek to always reflect Christ. God is referred to as Holy, Holy, Holy, which means he is perfect with no sin. It is important to be Holy, because without being Holy we will never see God.
They are not of the world, even as I am not of it. (John 17:16). It is important we associate with other Christians because it helps us to remain Holy, and we minister to the world with one or more Christians, that way we can keep each other Holy. Christ gives us divine power to remain Holy, and not to conform to the pattern of the world; and be aware of Satan, because he tempts us through our emotions to make us unholy.
He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth” (Psalm 46:10). If we can be still inside and commune Christ, it will help us to remain Holy. My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, (James 1:19). We live by the Spirit, and we listen and think before we speak.
When we minister to others, it is important to remain calm, and respond with scriptures. Take advantage of every opportunity because these are evil times. Because of this, don’t be ignorant, but understand the Lord’s will (Ephesians 5:16-17). We must know scriptures to remain Holy, because the power is in God’s words.
Today, seek to be Holy in every situation, and refuse to let Satan trigger your emotions. Instead, respond with a humble heart and with Godly wisdom and show remain calm and in control.
Prayer: Lord, help me to be Holy and never conform to the pattern of this world. Guide me in the Spirit to be in control and to reflect Godly wisdom. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
