《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do” (1Pe 1:15)
Meditation one: Why
should Christians be holy in all they do? It is because our God heavenly Father
is a holy God. When we were still ignorant, we indulged our desires. We were
self-centered in all we did, and set rules per our own standards. Now we are
saved through grace, all things are centered on God. His standard is to make us
holy like Him. A holy life is not our choice, but His command, and the will
that He has set for us (1Th 4:3).
Meditation two: Since God wants us to be holy, how can we live a holy life? On the passive side, we must lay aside all filth so can be free from the bondage of sin. On the proactive side, we must live sanctified lives among the crowd. We must let others see that we belong to Christ through our daily lives, words, deeds, and attitudes. We cannot rely on ourselves and become holy, but God has given us the Holy Spirit to be our help and victory.
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank You for sanctifying me out of this world. Your purpose is to want me to be holy like You. Without sanctification, no one will see the Lord. (Heb 12:14) I ask Your Holy Spirit to fill in me, so that I can constantly live in Your holiness. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
