TEXTS: Lev.11:44-45; 1Pet.1:14-16
- The holiness injunction is a command and not a suggestion, so God’s people that want to be preserved must live holy.
- Holiness is all about living a separated life from sin and the world; living as God has stated or required.
- It is about keeping off from things that God has commanded men to keep away from and living to please God always.
When God called His people out of Egypt, He gave them precepts to keep and rituals to carry out in order to make them different from other
nations around them.
The Almighty God wants us to be separated from the world and cleave unto God’s cause, seeking always to grow in the kingdom (Rom.12:1-3).
Any person that returns to the way of the world will not enjoy the privileges of the kingdom because he has estranged himself in the kingdom. Therefore one’s position in Christ is secured by living according to the demands of the Lord (Isa.1:18-19).
