Pursue a Life of Holiness - by Joyce Meyer Ministries daily devotion 26 November Sunday
But as the One Who called you is holy, you yourselves also be holy in all your conduct and manner of living.
— 1 Peter 1:15
I think we need to be a little more careful than we are with how we live. Not that we have to be so careful that we live in fear, but careful in a godly way, not a legalistic way.
Because if we’re not careful about who our friends are, what television programs and movies we watch, what kinds of books we read, what kinds of music we listen to, how we spend our money, and what we do with our time, we could end up living wasted lives.
As Christians, we must pursue holiness and realize that we are sanctified, which means we are set apart for God’s use. In fact, the minute we accept Christ as our Savior, we are sanctified by the Holy Spirit and set apart for a God-given purpose. And if we’re not fulfilling our purpose or if we’re not pursuing our purpose, we’re going to feel empty and frustrated.
I urge you today to pursue your purpose of holiness. When faced with challenging decisions, ask God what to do and choose the path of holiness that He has laid out for you.
