To Be Holy

…He made you holy by means of Christ Jesus, just as He did for all people everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours. (1 Corinthians 1:2 NLT)

What does it mean to be holy? As the verse says, we are made holy because we belong to Jesus. However, as we get to know God we are changed because of our relationship with him. That changes causes us to continually seek to be more like him. It causes us to  cry out “Lord, look at my heart and show me where I need to be different.”

Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends You, and lead me along the path of everlasting life. (Psalms 139:23-24 NLT)

This is not forced on us by any institution or custom. It is a response to God’s love evident in our lives. Our desperate cry is caused by a deep longing to know God more.
