A reminder for today
I am writing to God's church in Corinth, to you who have been called by God to be his own holy people. He made you holy by means of Christ Jesus, just as he did for all people everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours. (1 Corinthians 1:2)
To be holy is to be dedicated or consecrated (sacred) to God. My friend we have been called by God to be His own holy people. Paul says that we are made holy by Jesus Christ and what He did. It is funny how people seem to transform this word. When you are a religious person, people are quick to scorn you and say that you think you are so holy. When you are wrong you will always look for a reason to argue your position. When people are not very religious they are quick to say terrible things about other. It is in their ignorance that they will find their judgement.
My friend, when you call on the name of Jesus Christ you are made holy no matter who you are or what you did. God’s forgiveness reaches further that we can understand and in His grace we will flourish and become the holy people that God wants us to be.
So today I want you to understand that you are holy and this means that you are different than the rest of this world. You are on a different level and you live in a different way. You see things different and you do things different, because God’s love flows from within.
Lord, guide and lead us to become your holy people and in this way bring glory to you. In Jesus name.
Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
