Session 7: You Are Holy
BIBLE VERSE for YOU ARE HOLY
REFLECTION for YOU ARE HOLY
For a long time, I’ll admit, I just didn’t “get” righteousness and holiness. I thought it was about living up to impossible standards of perfection, which caused a lot of frustration. But we will never be perfect. More importantly, nothing we can ever do in our own power makes us truly holy or righteous in God’s eyes. Only our relationship with Jesus Christ and what He did can give us the opportunity to be holy in God’s eyes.
We certainly have a responsibility and a part to play in this as well, as the letter from Peter above indicates, but it is only through the sacrifice of Jesus that we can be seen as holy by God. As you grow closer to God and spend more time with Him in scripture and prayer, as you are doing now, you will naturally want to conform to new holy desires and not old sinful desires.
PRAYER TIME for YOU ARE HOLY
Pray for God to reveal to you some specific ways He wants you to be obedient to Him. Accept and receive these instructions in love and prayer as they are intended.
(Note: It does not have to be some long list or complicated thing. Also, remember that God may correct us, but condemnation and criticism are not how God speaks to us.)
