“The evident character of God is holiness. -Pastor Segun Obadje”
It is very important to know that God’s nature is holiness and if God is holy, we must therefore walk no live in holiness. The nature of God that we receive is not a nature of unrighteousness but a nature of righteousness unto holiness. We understand that our salvation is a call and we have responded to the call. So we must live in holiness.
- What is Holiness?
Holiness is known as the purity of God. Holiness is first a nature and a character. It’s very important to know that this is the nature and the character of God. We understand that we are the children of God
Galatians 3:26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
It’s clear that we are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus and if we are the children of God then we must truly live as His children because God is Holy and He is our Father. We see that God said clearly that He is a Holy God.
Leviticus 19:2 Speak unto all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say unto them, YE SHALL BE HOLY: FOR I THE LORD YOUR GOD AM HOLY.
Leviticus 20:7 Sanctify yourselves therefore, and BE YE HOLY: FOR I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD.
Here we see that God is not telling us, what He is not, but what He is. That’s why He said “For I the Lord your God Am holy”. This tells us that living a life outside holiness is to display a nature that is not of God as His children.
In the next series, we shall look at GOD HAS CALLED US UNTO HOLINESS.
