"For God did not call us to uncleanness, but in holiness." - 1 Thessalonians 4 V7
"...but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, Be holy, for I am holy." - 1 Peter1 V15, 16
Our God is a holy God and His holiness exceeds far above that we can imagine. With our earthly, sinful bodies we cannot see God because of His holiness, but the Scripture teaches us that one day all believers will stand before God. Now no man can live up-to the holy standard of God, so how is this possible? Well, only those who are washed by the blood of the Lamb will stand in front of God because we meet the righteous requirement of God through the righteousness of our Saviour Jesus Christ. That's why the Scripture teaches us that the blood of the Lamb washes away all our sins and we stand holy in front of God. Praise the Lord!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
