"But as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, "Be holy, for I am holy." 1 Peter 1:15-16


When Jesus said "Follow me," he excluded no one. In the Gospels we meet many of the ordinary, imperfect, average men and women who first responded to Jesus. He called them all to become holy as God is holy.

There are not two kinds in the Christian life. One for "fully convicted" and another for "partially convicted" disciples. Christ calls all of us without exception to the fullness of loving Him. "Whoever claims to live in Him must walk as Jesus did." 1 John 2:6

"But whoever keeps His Word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him." 1 John 2:5

As we travel down the path of discipleship, it's important that we realize that the goal is to have God's love "perfected in us." Perfect love asks us to imitate the unconditional love God showed us when He freely gave us the gift of Jesus. We imitate that love in our lives by walking in the Light and Obeying Him!

Won't you let Him bring you beyond being "decent" and "ordinary" to the level of Holy as He is?

"Lord, make us holy. Help us to look beyond the world in which we live to want to be more, to want to be Holy like you." - Amen
