1 Peter 1:16 …”you shall be holy for I am holy”
To be holy…what does that mean exactly? Well for sure it means: we can’t lie just because it’s easier, we can’t avoid hard conversations with people because we don’t like confrontations, we can’t let go of our frustrations and anger because we want to, sometimes we have to make the hard choices because they are best. Mostly being holy is battling your flesh so that you don’t give in and do what “you” want; instead, you do what “God” wants. Being holy isn’t something that we can do on our own. We MUST have God’s help, strength, and His mercy. How thankful we should be that all of these are readily avalible.
