“Why do you call me good? No one is good except God alone. Mark 10:18
Everyone remembers the excitement of getting saved. It is through grace. But being saved isn’t all that matters. It is about growing and becoming more like Jesus. It is about pursuing holiness. How can we achieve this?
We rely on the power of the Holy Spirit. It transforms us more and more to be like Jesus. this is called sanctification. When we cooperate with the Spirit, then we are pursuing holiness. In order to do this, we have to be vigorous. We have to apply sustained effort. We need to strive.
Let us not loose out on the fact that we have to let our pursuit of holiness be anchored in the grace of God. It is only by the grace of God that we can succeed. Let us strive to be holy because our God is a holy God.
Memory verse: Hebrews 12:14
“Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify your name? For you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship you, for your righteous act have been revealed.” Revelation 15:4
