Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. 2 Corinthians 7:1
The bible makes us understand that without holiness and righteousness we cannot see God. But what is holiness and righteousness? It simply means to be separated unto God. To be separated here means to be called to the work of God in Christ. Every born-again child of God is called to holiness and righteousness. We are called to work like Christ, talk like Christ and live like Christ.
It’s important to note that holiness and righteousness is not sinlessness, is not fleshly perfection, is not about outward performance or outward appearances. Holiness and righteousness is about inward transformation, that ultimately leads to repentance.
- Pray that Holy Spirit, enable us to live a holy and righteousness life so we can represent Christ on earth.
- Pray that Holy Spirit help us to walk in holiness and righteousness so that we will fulfil our destiny and the purpose in Christ Jesus.
- Pray that Holy Spirit to teach us the path of holiness, righteousness and engrave us to live like Christ in words, thoughts and deeds.
