You shall be holy, for I the Lord your God am Holy. Leviticus 19:2b
To walk with God is to walk by faith, to trust and obey one day at a time, recognizing our never-ending need for grace.
Even in this complicated century, the path to holiness remains the same as it was in the first century after Jesus was born:
Prayer and meditation (quiet time apart with God, listening to Him, thinking about what He tells us, learning to trust Him) followed by
Simple obedience to what He has said.
1 Timothy 4:13-16

As he journeyed he came near Damascus, and suddenly a light shone around him from heaven. Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?”
And he said, “Who are You, Lord?”
Then the Lord said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. It is hard for you to kick against the goads.”
So he, trembling and astonished, said, “Lord, what do You want me to do?”
Then the Lord said to him, “Arise and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”
And the men who journeyed with him stood speechless, hearing a voice but seeing no one. Then Saul arose from the ground, and when his eyes were opened he saw no one. But they led him by the hand and brought him into Damascus. And he was three days without sight, and neither ate nor drank.
What a glorious sight to see "a light from heaven". Saul (Paul) did not see the glory and was trembling. He knew it was the Lord whom he had been persecuting. A dramatic change took place on that day, when the "Light from Heaven" shone all around him. That same light is in you and me IF we accept Christ as our Lord and savior and follow Him. Choose today whom you will serve. #serveChrist #GloryoftheLord #LightfromHeaven
in whom we have redemption through His blood,[a] the forgiveness of sins.
A highway shall be there, and a road,
And it shall be called the Highway of Holiness.
The unclean shall not pass over it,
But it shall be for others.
Whoever walks the road, although a fool,
Shall not go astray. No lion shall be there,
Nor shall any ravenous beast go up on it;
It shall not be found there.
But the redeemed shall walk there,
And the ransomed of the Lord shall return,
And come to Zion with singing,
With everlasting joy on their heads.
They shall obtain joy and gladness,
And sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
I have been redeemed and all my sins forgiven. The redeemed shall walk on the highway of Holiness! Have you accepted Christ? If yes you too have been redeemed!
For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.
“Speak to all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘You shall be holy, for I the Lord your God am holy.
Father, Son and Holy Spirit! Yes we have direst access to God through Holy Spirit. Three in one. This is who I am in Christ! #whoIaminChrist
“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.
‘Honor your father and your mother, as the Lord your God has commanded you, that your days may be long, and that it may be well with you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you.
For God commanded, saying, ‘Honor your father and your mother’; and, ‘He who curses father or mother, let him be put to death.’
“Honor your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with promise:
Old or New testament we are to Honor our Mother! In doing so we will be blessed, live long, and receive God's promise land! Woe to those who do NOT honor their mother......
HAVE A WONDERFUL MOTHER'S DAY MOM!!!! We love you!
New King James Version
Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord:
New International Version
Warning and Encouragement
Make every effort to live in peace with everyone ( Romans 14:19Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification.) and to be holy (Romans 6:22 But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life.); without holiness no one will see the Lord.
Strive to live in peace with everybody and pursue that consecration and holiness without which no one will [ever] see the Lord.
Pursue peace with everyone pursue holiness SEE THE LORD! This scripture in all versions tels us the importance of peace and holiness for our lives and to see the Lord. We must pursue, seek after, holiness. Bible dictionary defines holiness as "separation to god and conduct fitting for those separated." Holines is... not something that people do, but something that god does in them, The pursuit of holiness occurs daily as we yield ourselves in obedience to the Lord.
