Do you want to live a Holy Life
Be close to the Heavenly Father. Yes, you can if you follow his rules for Holy living. Then, you have to set your heart on things above; not on earthly things. Not on luxury houses, luxury cars and money. Therefore, put to death, whatever belongs to your earthly nature. Colossians 3:5
When we live a Holy life, we come close to God, and our ways influence friends, co-workers around you. They notice the difference. They start talking with each other.One would say “Look at that guy. He is not like us” and they would want to know why. They will see the fruits of the spirit in us, which is love, peace and joy.
They will wonder why we are always smiling, happy and out going. What is the reason. And that you are the first to help a friend, co-worker in trouble, This in turn will bring many to the Lord.
When Jesus died shedding his blood, he took our sins way. And as we accept him as our lord, God, we automatically get access to him and communicate with him through the Holy Spirit.
John 14:15 “If you love me, you will obey what I command, I will ask the Father, and he will give you another counselor to be with you forever ” the Holy Spirit
Romans 8:8 says “Those controlled by sinful nature cannot please God” So, if you are not able to please God, will he communicate with you ? Unlikely. That is why its so important to follow holy scriptures and try lead a righteous, holy life.
Holy living God standard-
Holy living in this unholy world is not easy.
Live a life of Love-
Ephesians 5:1-21 ” live a life free from sexual immorality, obscenity, foolish talk or coarse joking which is out of place. Rather, you should live a life of thanksgiving to the Lord.” and it says “Love the lord, your God with all your mind, soul and spirit” and “do not worship idols”
Bury your earthly desires, such as:
Because of these the wrath of God is coming. You must also get rid of your bad qualities such as anger, rage, malice, slander, and filthy language as well, if you intend to live a Holy life that is pleasing to God.
Bury all your unnatural sexual desires. Stop looking at women with lust and evil desires, covet neighbors wife. Rather, respect them. Fellowship with them in holiness. Holiness brings us close to God. And we are the “salt of the earth”. Therefore, for us to be like salt of the earth, we need to taste like salt, which gives flavor.
God wants us to be Holy as so we can be free of sin, and to be close to him, and communicate with him, be presentable to God like a beautiful, fully blossomed flower. Therefore, with Holiness, we glorify our God the Heavenly Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen
