Thought For Today: “Holiness Isn’t About Rules”
Holiness doesn’t begin with a set of rules and regulations; rather it begins with the Lord. He is a holy God, and as such He calls us to be the same, holy, that is, separate from sin.
“But as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, ‘Be holy, for I am holy.’” (1 Peter 1:15-16)
God has called us to a holy life, and this call to a holy life is based in Him. Some people live their lives based upon cultural holiness, that is, they adopt their character and behavior to the culture and society around them.
When we start conforming to our culture and society rather than to God and His word, then we start becoming less holy in the eyes of God. God hasn’t called us to be like others; rather He’s called us to be like Him. And so, holiness is our conforming to the character to God, who is holy, pure and separate from sin.
