The Essential 100, Day 93
Be holy. Two very simple words, but impossible to do. Read 1 Peter 1:1-2:12.
God calls us to be holy, but he knew that we would never be able to be holy. How does that work? God is holy. Through Christ, we can be made in the image of God and because of Christ living and working through us, we can be holy. That is the only way we are able to be holy in what we do, by allowing Jesus Christ to live through us every moment of every day.
Do we truly understand that the only way to be holy is to surrender? We cannot do it on our own and no amount of trying harder will help. Only by allowing Christ to live through us can we be holy as he is holy.
