Leviticus 19:1-10

What do you think about when you think of holiness? Do you think of someone who is perfect and untouchable? What do you think about you own holiness? do you ever wonder, How you can be holy? Throughout Israel's history, holiness was a major issue. As the people's holiness went, so went the state of the nation. Their spiritual strength and their political strength seemed to go hand in hand. In the days of the good King Jehoshaphat, Judah actually won a battle because the people marched before the army singing and praising God for the "splendor of his holiness" (2 Chronicles 20:1-27).

In Psalm 29, David encouraged us to offer praise to God for His strength and glory and holiness. When we do that, amazing things happen. Because we take the time and attention to see the splendor and beauty of God's holiness, we take on that beauty. The more we lift our heads and hearts to God in praise, the more God is reflected in our faces and in our behavior.

That's why your time in prayer shouldn't always be squeezed in between running from one thing to the next. You need time with God to really engage and bask in His presence, allowing Him to conform you and remold you in His image. Each time you do that you become more holy, more like Him.

Hugs and prayers

When I think of holiness I think of God.Its hard for me to think of myself as Holy.But being a child of God we need to strive to be like him.The more time spent in prayer & Praising God will make us more like him. Becca

Izzy, thank you for such an interesting devotional today. Using the word "Reverence" in regards to mother and father gives more strength and meaning to me than the word I usually see, honor your parents.

I really liked the part about when we reap, leaving some for the needy and the stranger. God wants us to share what we have with those around us in need.

And, if we all loved our neighbor as ourselves, there would not be all the shootings and crimes that exist in today's world around us. We all need to strive for more Holiness in our own daily lives.

Becca, I never really thought of myself as HOLY either. I always enjoy your comments and others in these devotionals too. Like our mini bible study to start our day.

Holiness is a difficult word to put a definition on. What comes to my mind, is am I living up to the covenants I have made in my life with the Lord. Do I try to the best of my ability the laws and precepts of the gospel? That is the great thing about the great plan of salvation, if we fail, we can pick up ourselves, repent and start again, as many times as we need !

Honor thy parents - are we living and doing better in following the teachings of the gospel than they taught us? Doing that brings the honor to them, to see their children succeeding in a testimony.
