14 As obedient children, do not be conformed to the desires of your former ignorance. 15 But as the one who called you is holy, you also are to be holy in all your conduct; 16 for it is written, Be holy, because I am holy. 1 Peter 1:14 – 16 CSB
Holiness is the most healing place there is. To be fully placed in the hands of God is the most secure place we can be where all of life falls into place. There we find our truest identity. There the wounds of yesterday are redeemed for our good and God’s glory. There we come to know why we exist.
We fear holiness. Why? Because we don’t trust God. We are deathly afraid of what He will take away from us. The gain, however, always far outweighs the cost.
So let’s embrace holiness. Let’s embrace the repentance that leads to holiness. Let’s not run away from the Lord. Let’s run to Him and find in Hime the security we have always longed for. Beloved, holiness is the garment worn by those who are living in the Reign.
