Lesson 15 - WHY HOLINESS?
Holiness is not an option to the Christian faith. Instead, It is a Gracious opportunity for you to walk in the fullness of all that God has called you to be--TODAY! You are an ordinary person called to do extraordinary things.
Holiness – God’s character is Holy and He calls us to be Holy just like Him. Holiness is not an option to the life of a Christian, or for only a select few mighty saints. Instead, it is the plan of God for your life.
Holiness in the Bible – Holiness is not just lists of “don’t do”. Instead, holiness is found throughout the scriptures. Below is a list of words, from the Greek language, found in the New Testament, that explain holiness:
- Holy – (Greek for holy is “Hagios”: adj.) holy means: revered, sacred, and consecrated to God.
- Saint – is the plural (more than one) of the adjective “holy”; saints means “holy ones”.
- Sanctify – is “to make saint” (saintly or holy) (i.e. sanctification; you are being sanctified now)
