Holiness is the highest and most glorious attribute of God. All throughout scripture God calls His people to be holy.

“You must be holy because I am holy. I am the Lord, who makes you holy.”(Leviticus 11:45). ..”But just as He who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.”(1Peter 1:15-16)

Holy: Free from sin and sinful affections, pure in heart, godly – set apart for sacred use, set apart for God.

Holiness: the state or quality of being holy, or sinless, sanctity, godliness, sacredness.

How do we get to know the holiness of God and how do we become holy?

Call on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.. “May the God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The One who calls you is faithful and He will do it.” (1 Thess: 5:23-24)

Jesus prayed for us to be holy: “Holy Father, keep them and care for them…Make them pure and holy by teaching them your words of truth.”(John 17:11, 17)

Worship God in His Holiness..The prophet Isaiah who was set apart for a life of holiness wrote: “I saw the Lord, seated on a throne, high and exalted.. In a great chorus the seraphim sang, “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord Almighty; the whole earth is full of His glory.” (Isaiah 6:1-3)….”Worship the Lord in the splendor of His holiness; tremble before Him all the earth.” (Psalm 96:9)

Study and obey the Holy Word of God: “All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.. “(2Timothy 3:16)

Come before the Most Holy One with a contrite and humble spirit:”The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise.”(Psalm 51:17)…… “Create in me a clean  heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” (Psalm 51:10)
