God tells us to be holy as He is holy. Holy mackerel! Most of us are scared off by that statement because we know we are far from holy! But be of good cheer…God has made a way for us. First, that way is through Jesus. We must submit our hearts and lives to Jesus and ask Him to come “inside” of us and not just remain a religious idea on the “outside”.
The pursuit of holiness does not end there. We must strive and seek God’s directions for all the avenues of our lives, so He may complete His good work in us.
Remember, originally, man was created with faith, hope and love ruling him. By Adam’s sin, death then entered in and changed that perfect nature. That perfect faith (belief/binding); that perfect hope (happy expectation of good) and that perfect love (1 Corinthians 13 type, that is), were changed to a primal mind, will and emotions.
Seek God to have His way fill you and fix your “stinking thinking” back to faith; change the demanding will back to hope, and change the roller coaster ride of emotions back to love.
It is hard to change, but God has made the way…take it! “For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all shall be made alive.” (1 Corinthians 15:22) Endure the fire—it’s producing pure gold!
