We Shall Be Holy

Being Holy is God's promise, call, and reward for us.  Being Holy is God's nature and His loving desire for us.  When we are holy we truly love what is holy.  We will truly know and love our holy God.  Being holy is difficult, unrewarding and impossible when we think it is something we must do.  Being holy is something we discard when we think we must change ourselves, because we know that within us there is a desire to compromise and enjoy sin.  In spite of what we think and what we are, God loves us.  He will make us holy as His is holy.  This is His greatest blessing for us.

God is holy.  He only does holy things.  He only does what is right because He is holy.  His nature is holy.  He is filled with holiness.  He only desires what is right.  He is holy.  His holiness causes Him to hate what is evil.  He desires to destroy what is evil.  He is holy.  He will do what He desires.  His actions are holy.  He is holy.  God desires that all that He has created be filled with His holiness.  He will remove all beings that are not in conformity to His holiness.

God created man.  He created man with a nature that is able to be filled with His.  He gave man the ability to become holy.  God will make holy all men who are willing to be made partakers of His holiness.  He desires to impart His holy nature into the nature of man.  He desires to become one with man.  He is holy.  He desires to live in a holy environment.  He desires to dwell within us.  He will dwell within us.  Hw will make us holy.  He is holy.

We have been taught to try and change ourselves so that our actions are good and not bad.  We have been taught to try and change our will so that we want to do what is right.  We have been taught to try and change our desires and our motives so we will do what is right.  These are all good things.  But only God can change our being.  God can change what we are.  He can make us holy.  We can desire to do holy things as our being becomes holy.  When our being becomes holy we will do holy things because we desire to do holy things because we are holy.  We will be united with ourselves acting our our desires which reflect what we are.  We can be united with God in our innermost being, desiring what He desires and doing what we see Him doing.  We can be made holy.  God is holy.  He promises to make us holy.  The Bible says:

“Ye shall be holy; for I am holy.”  Leviticus 11:44 KJV

 “He hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love.”  Ephesians 1:4 KJV

 “But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.”  1 Peter 1:15-16 KJV

 “He (corrects us) for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness.”  Hebrews 12:10 KJV

 “Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.”  Hebrews 12:14 KJV

God is Holy.  He loves Holiness. He will make us holy so we can truly love Him and His heavenly place where He dwells.
