Inspiring Words

Is it possible to get “Holy” in a hurry? It happens immediately when you turn your life over to God. At that moment, because of Jesus the Christ, the penalty for your sins was paid in full at the “CROSS” and God see you as righteous. Your sins (past, present, and future) are forgiven. God remembers them NO more. This is called “positional holiness”, in other words, how God see you. God sees you in and through His beloved Son, Jesus. But when you say you can’t get holy in a hurry, we’re talking about ” practical holiness” – the actions and attitudes in your life. Even when you allow God to direct your life, you will still be tempted to act according to your old nature (sin nature). All of your old undesirable habits and thoughts won’t immediately vanish. Practical holiness happens gradually as you align your thinking with God’s precepts. As your thinking changes, your conduct will change also. (1 Peter 1:15-16) “But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation: Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy”.
