God Connect: Daily Renewing Your Mind, Body, and Spirit

Holiness

on March 9, 2012

“Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance.”  1 Peter 1:13-14

Being a Christian isn’t just a decision that you make one time in your life and then go on with your normal routine.  It is a decision you make each day.  Serving God requires discipline and commitment.  We must discipline ourselves to put away our former lusts and to gird up the loins of your mind.

When we discipline ourselves to put away the old things, we also need to make a commitment to the new things.  As Christian, God asks us to lead a holy life.  The only way we can find holiness is through our relationship with God.  The closer we get to God, the more we are able to put away things of this world because we find that they don’t matter anymore.

Today I challenge you to commit yourself to growing closer to God each day. Set aside time to read your Bible, study, and pray.  In turn, you will begin to see yourself moving toward the holiness God requires of us.

“But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.”  1 Peter 1:15-16
