Return To Holiness

14 Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. ~ Hebrews 12:14NIV

Holiness is a word we don’t hear very often in the Church anymore, and when we do hear it, it is taken a bit out of context. We are led to believe that holiness consists entirely of our outward appearances and nothing else. Yet, we watch any old filth on the TV with the most explicit language and nudity and sexual content, and we don’t even bat an eye. Our consciences have been seared as with a hot iron and we don’t even realize it.

Holiness is belonging to and being dedicated to God. You have now passed from corruption to spiritual perfection or purity, unrighteousness to sacred because you are no longer tainted by evil or sin. In pursuit of holiness, we don’t continue doing the same old things we use to do. No, we resist temptation. We turn away from evil.

Your life will always go in the direction of the dominant images in your mind. What you let in by way of music, tv, movies, etc. (that is, hearing and seeing) is what will shape your destiny.

The return of Christ Jesus is so very close. Look around, and you will see, the time is near for His return, and He is looking for the holy, those whose garments are washed in the blood. Therefore, my brothers and sisters, I beseech you to get back to holiness.
