MORNINGTIME 3855 

Sanctify yourselves therefore, and BE YE HOLY: for I am the Lord your God. And ye shall KEEP MY STATUTES, AND DO THEM: I am the Lord which sanctify you. Leviticus 20:7-8. 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. On the surface, this seems like an impossible thing to do. If our righteousness is as filthy rags, what chance is there of us being any kind of Holy? The answer is easy, we can't do it. Did you catch that, WE, can't do it, WE people, can't grow ourselves into Holiness on our own. BUT GOD, Who is all powerful, can do whatever He pleases, and if He tells us to do something, THEN THAT SOMETHING CAN BE DONE. OK, that's good, but how? It takes an Act Of God to accomplish this. If The Father has determined, the Son has Paid For, and the Holy Spirit brings it to pass, then with the Help of the Triune Godhead, AND YOUR OBEDIENCE, it's a done deal. How? As you read and study your Bible, THE WORD OF GOD, you'll start to Understand and Comprehend what Holiness is. As you, even blindly, ask the Lord to Grow you in Holiness, He will. (Remember it's HIS WILL to do this). Being mindful of the Leading of the Holy Spirit as He directs you steps throughout your day, you'll find your thoughts, your actions, your deeds and your Prayer Life becoming more CHRISTLIKE, and less worldly. The things of the world you used to love will start to fade away as the Things Of The Lord that you used to hate, will become Life to you. It's a daily Walk and Obedience to WANT to Grow in Holiness, to be like the Son, and be found Pleasing to the Father. He does all the work, as you allow Him to change you and Grow you in Faith and Obedience. How far can you Grow in Holiness? AS FAR AS YOU WANT. It's one step at a time, day after day, with each Obedience being the foundation for the next one. Are you "Sold Out" to Christ and ALL He has for you? If "Yes", that's GOoD, now, Be Blessed.
