MORNINGTIME 3856 

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. This thing called Holiness is not a goal with a certain number or amount of Holiness you're trying to get to, and then declare, "I made it, I've gotten to the place I set at the start". No, Holiness itself is not even a goal to work towards. Assuming you are already a Christian and you have Christ in you, then you already have Christ AND HIS HOLINESS at work in you. He is already changing your Heart to move away from the things of the world and into the Things of God. He has STARTED this Work, and He will also FINISH what He has started. As you continue to read, study and muse on the Word of God, He will reveal things in you that need to go out in the trash, making room for His Holiness to Grow in you. The Holy Spirit will daily encourage you to, "Don't do that, do this instead", AND AS YOU LEARN TO HEAR THAT STILL, SMALL, VOICE, AND GROW IN OBEDIENCE, Holiness will fill the void left by worldliness being cast out. The Goal is to daily Grow in Faith and Obedience, resulting in Growing Holiness. It's your HEART ATTITUDE AND OBEDIENCE as a block-by-block Foundation the Lord is Building that you and He are Working on, and not a set goal of "X" % and, "I have arrived". As Believers, we have no guarantee of even having tomorrow (on this earth). Therefore, there are no set goals to work towards. The key is to Obey and Grow as much as possible TODAY in all you can as the Holy Spirit leads. It's a HEART ATTITUDE for Holiness. Are you a fast LEARNER, go for it. Are you slower at learning than some? Give it your Best as unto the Lord and fulfill ALL that Christ has for you today, AND YOU'VE DONE YOUR BEST. His Best is Holiness, and you will, Be Blessed.
