Text: Romans 1:3-6
“Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:
By whom we have received grace and apostleship, for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name:
Among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ…”
If you in Christ…you have been made holy also…by the same Spirit of holiness…
““And to be transformed as you embrace the glorious Christ-within as your new life and live in union with him! For God has re-created you all over again in his perfect righteousness, and you now belong to him in the realm of true holiness.” TPT
Holiness is not an enblem!
It’s not a badge !
It’s not a look!
It’s not a way of dressing or talking!
Holiness is the nature of God that comes with the new birth…into the spirit of the new creation in Christ – 2 Corinthians 5:17-21…
So it is not worked for…it is not earned…it’s one of “the things that accompany salvation”…a reality of the New and better Covenant in the blood of Jesus Christ…
Holiness is a working, divine force in a person who has eternal life in him (the God kind of life)…which produces seeable evidence that advertises God…
Holiness is a power working in a man who is born again (in Christ)…to produce the personality of God for men to see…
Holiness is something to be…”Be ye holy”…Yes! Because you now have what it takes to be holy…it’s in your DNA as one born of God…
Just like sin is in the DNA of everyone born by natural parents (it came from Adam)…John 1:12-13; John 3:3-6.
Holiness, dear friend, is loving righteousness and hating wickedness – Psalm 45:7!
Holiness is the realm of God…where there are no shadows, no fears, no doubts, no darkness! Just glory, peace, joy, prosperity, health, total liberty from sin and Satan! Alleluia!
