1 Peter 1:16– Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. (KJV)
Be Ye Holy
Be ye holy, for I am holy. This word is plain to see.
While it is the beginning to be born again,
God has more in store for me.
Jesus is my example, the joy pattern clear to follow.
Whatever life hands me, it’s wrong for me to wallow
In self-pity, greed and gossip, in gloom and grim despair;
When Jesus offers freedom to shed every single care.
Never can my love end upon my saving.
He desires much more than that.
To be like Him my craving.
Romans 12:1-I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. (KJV)
1 Peter 2:1-3-So clean house! Make a clean sweep of malice and pretense, envy and hurtful talk. You’ve had a taste of God. Now like infants at the breast, drink deep of God’s pure kindness. Then you’ll grow up mature and whole in God.(MSG).
Prayer: Dear God, were it not for Jesus we would hesitate to address you at all. We can be nothing useful, but for the blood of Jesus, the Living Christ. We praise you and ask that your holiness become part of our very nature. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
