Thought For Today – November 6

 

Called To Holiness!

 

“For God hath not Called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.” 1Thessalonians 4: 7. Therefore we should not use the liberty which we as Christians have in Christ as a license to live carelessly, wallowing again in the mire of the world, the flesh, and the devil. We ought to seek a higher plateau of living. We ought to approve of excellence, and we ought to strive to live godly as our Father would have us to live. For he has told us: “be ye holy as I am holy”.

Not that we need to be arrogant and haughty, spiritually proud Christians walking around with a chip on our shoulder, for God hates a haughty spirit and a proud look; but in all meekness and love toward one another, we ought to always be aware of the great price that was paid for our redemption, and be always aware of the name we bear, lest we by our lives blaspheme and disgrace his holy name.

Our reasonable service to God is that we yield our bodies to him, and not only our bodies, but our mind and soul also so that we might truly be his holy temple. That he might through us and in us live his life to perfection and that he might be glorified.

Lord we pray that you will cleanse us from within, help us to be holy. Sanctify us and let us live on a plain of life that is fit for a king, in fact, for the King of kings, the Lord Jesus Christ. Help us to please thee in all our ways.
