Time for Coffee in a Teacup!
Today I'm sharing from a study about holiness.
For many people to be 'holy' immediately brings these thoughts...
You don't walk ~ you float.
You don't talk ~ you pontificate.
You don't eat ~ you 'sup.'
You don't sleep because you're too busy with the Father's work.
Most of us have these ideas of living a holy life and it seems so unattainable. But scripture teaches us that we can be holy, that our holiness grows as we grow closer to Jesus, becoming more like Him.
If it were not possible to live a holy life God would not have commanded it. He said in Leviticus 19:2, "You shall be holy, for I the Lord your God am holy." To be holy means to be separated to God. Being set apart to God makes us holy.
We are not made holy by doing good things. We are made holy by faith in Christ. Little by little as we grow and live with the Lord, we will become more like Him.
But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit or the Lord.
2 Corinthians 3:18
As you draw closer to Him, you will continuously become more holy. Although perfection is not totally attainable in this life, Christian maturity and holy living is something we should constantly strive toward and aim for.
Just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love.
Today's post was inspired by:
Praying In The Spirit
My pictures today are of items very dear to my heart. The crochet tablecloth was made by my grandmother. The teapot and cup are gifts of a few years ago from my youngest daughter, Peggy. When my second daughter, Tammy, was very young, she gave me the little hummel figurine. And lastly, the yellow mugrug was made by me!!
Until Next Time
Take Time to be Holy!
