“You need to desire to be holy. I want you to press in. It is not out of reach. For too many years, those who do not know My heart and those who do not know My Word have lied to each other and to you. They have proclaimed that holiness is unreachable. The cross has given you new life, My kind of life. Jesus has gone before you to show you the life that I would give you after His work was completed. Do you think that I would waste His life and settle for mediocre results for such a great price?
Stop listening to lies. Dig in. Go for it with Me. I will show you what I have provided for you in My Word. I will implement holiness in you if you fully surrender to Jesus. Together We will honor the wonderful work that has been accomplished for you from the baptism of Jesus in the Jordan, through the cross, past the grave, and beyond His resurrection. His great work provides all that is needed for you to become all that I have planned for you.”
Romans 12:1 NIV
Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God…
1 Cor. 1:2 NIV
To the church of God in Corinth, to those sanctified to Christ Jesus and called to be holy, together with all those everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ - their Lord and ours.
Hebrews 10:14 NIV
…because by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.
1 Peter 1:15-16 NIV
15) But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do;
16) for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.
So many times we forget what has been provided for us at the cross of Jesus Christ. Often we really don’t care. The things of this life so consume us that the things of God often take second place or are completely ignored.
Father God has planned a wonderful life for those who have given their lives to Jesus and choose to serve Him fully. He has wondrous things in store for us, if we would only seek Him and find His desires for our lives.
