“because it is written, “YOU SHALL BE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY.” –1 Peter 1:16
God says, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.” “Shall” is a command, My friends, and yes, it’s hard to do on our own; but, it is God who sanctifies us, not us! You and I can never achieve holiness by following a list of do’s and don’ts. We become holy by desiring to do the will of God because we understand he sanctifies us. We belong to God.
Our destiny is heaven bound; therefore, we live a life obeying God in ALL we do!
God says, ” I carried you on eagles wings.”
How then can we remove ourselves by doing evil in His sight? He has given us the power to live a life of holiness. Choices we make determine if we are heaven or hell bound.
Don’t be deceived, My friends.
Remember God says, ” You SHALL be holy, for I am holy!”
