For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy : AND IF if THE ROOT BE HOLY, SO ARE THE BRANCHES. Romans 11:16. I am the vine, YE ARE THE BRANCHES: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. John 15:5. These verses mean many things to many people. One big one is if you are in Christ, you will help save many people. And the only way to justify that if I'm not a big soul saver is to say, My life is a living testimony of the power of Christ to a lost and dying world. At least that's how I looked at things to justify  my existence. Oh how we can fool ourselves. Let's try this. If the root is Holy, the branch WILL BE HOLY, and will live a Holy Life To Christ, IN FRONT OF a lost and dying world. And just what is a Holy Life? "Dedicated or consecrated to God or a religious purpose; sacred". It also means you are cut from the norm and set aside as something special. You are cut out of the norm of this world and set aside to the Lord for His Purposes. Your Life will Be Holy, set aside, TO THE LORD. THAT'S a whole different meaning then, my life is an example for soul winners. This is a good start in illustrating a Holy Life, now go and ask the Lord how this applies to YOUR Life. When you have a revelation of Christ and HIS Holiness, YOU LITERALLY CAN'T GET UNDER THE CARPET DEEP ENOUGH. Everything around you is noise, including your heart beat and breathing, they are pounding in your ears and need to stop. That's generally not possible but you wish it were. All I can say is that if you find yourself in the Presence of the Lord, THE WORLD IS GONE, it's just you and Him, and it's Terrifyingly Awesome. That doesn't do justice to this example, but it's a small start. How much "Holy"  is there in your Life Today? Only you and the Lord can answer that to, Be Blessed.
