BE YE HOLY, FOR I AM HOLY

DAILY SOOL’S NOURISHMENT DEVOTIONAL BY PASTOR JULIUS U. BETHEL

Tuesday 18 June 2024

BIBLE REFERENCE: 1 Pet 1:15,16.

15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;

16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

THE MESSAGE: To be holy is to be morally clean. It is to be pure in heart and character and in your intentions.

The God we serve is holy and righteous. When He calls a man, He calls him to holiness (1 Thessalonians 4:7). You are called to holiness. Be ye holy.

You don’t have to practice sin anymore. You are to hate sin and run away from it wherever you find it. God wants you clean. He wants you to be like Him. A holy man has a true resemblance to God. He reflects God in his life and character.

In which areas does God want you to be holy? In all areas! God wants you to be holy in your words. Do not speak lies. No lie should come out of your mouth. Your words must be pure and clean at all times. No jesting nor singing of worldly songs.

You must be holy in your relationship with the opposite sex. No hugging of the opposite sex other than your spouse, no flirting with them, no discussion that is suggestive of sex, and no undue familiarity with them.

You must be holy in your dress and appearance. You will not dress worldly.no wearing of attachments or hair extensions, no weavon of any king, no make-up, no wearing of jewelries of any kind and sizes. These things are polluting your body and on your appearance. They give Satan glory over you instead of God. You don’t wear clothes of the opposite sex. They make you unholy before God. Though a man may say you look great in them.

You must be holy in your heart no evil thoughts must be in your heart. You must not entertain lust, hatred, malice, unforgiveness or bitterness against anyone in your heart. Keep it pure.

You must be holy in all your business dealings, in your office, at home and in all things. That is the type of life God wants you to live because He is a holy God. He is only saying you should look at Him and be like Him. Represent Him in holiness where you are.

To be holy, you must be born again, consecrate your life to God, desire to be holy, and pray for it until God assures you that He has done it.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Only those who are like God will live with God in Heaven.

PRAYER POINT: Pray that God will make you holy in every area of your life.
