I am a Christian, no I’m not perfect. Yes I mess up, don’t always feel or look my best or represent Christ as I should. But I am a Christian that understands that there is a standard to be upheld. Leviticus 20:26, 1peter 1:16 and others tell us that we should be holy for he our father is holy. This means that at the point of acceptance he has given us the capacity to be holy through this strength. This also means we have to take part in the process of ” being” holy. It does not simply just happen. Holiness is a conscious act of the will… it’s a process, it’s saying no to things that will keep you from the goal, it’s being honest about where you are and what your limits are. it’s setting boundaries emotionally, spiritually, sexually, and financially. God is not a genie and will not force himself or his will on you. You have to accept it and be active in carrying it out. Therefore BE HOLY..
