The pursuit of holiness means you have to pursue it…go after it with all your heart. Take a look at God: He is glorious, has beauty and order; He is sacred, clean and holy, wise, just and merciful. He is everything we are not!
Are you full of God and His holiness, or just full of yourself? Are you an empty cookie jar with nothing inside…just “painted” Christian on the outside?
Oh, we’re full alright…full of:
YUK–we are full of all that and more! And you thought you were so great, heh! But don’t despair…the remedy is to pursue holiness. But how?
Stop and think–if God is holy, set apart, a cut above, not polluted and there is no darkness in Him at all (1 John 1:5), and we are the opposite…then, if He comes into you, you’ll have the same holiness, too!
Adam separated us from God and His holiness being inside of us…but Jesus restores that condition. The Adam nature can never be holy, but the God nature is holiness. so get the God nature inside and let it rule.
Salvation, the true gift of God is really a restoration to holiness. Satan doesn’t want you to know that…but now you do. Go on now…pursue holiness!
