Living For God

Holiness is living your life for God. Likewise, it is living in devotion to God. It is what we all were created to do (Genesis 1:27).

Yet, when the “fall of man” happened (Genesis 3:1-24), we developed a sinful nature. Even so, the story doesn’t end there. Not if you don’t want it to.

Today, we all have an opportunity to devote our lives to God. We can do this by becoming “born again” and entering into a personal relationship with Jesus Christ (Romans 10:9).

Through our relationship with Jesus, we are then accepted by God (Romans 5:1). Reason being, Jesus is holy and without sin. Since we are not without sin, He is our perfect example of living a life devoted to the Heavenly Father.

When we are walking daily with Jesus, we will remain devoted to God. We will also desire God’s way of doing things. This will transpire through, daily, sanctification or allowing God to change us. This change is necessary, until our lives are rid of anything that displeases God (Romans 12:1-2). As you may know, this will be a process that lasts as long as we live on this Earth.

“Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.”

2 Corinthians 5:17

Finally, not only will our deeds go through a process of change, but the things we say will begin to change. 1 Peter 1:15 says but as He which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation. In summary, may our words and our deeds demonstrate that change is happening on the inside of us. May we continue to follow Jesus.

This is to my Father's glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.  John 15:8
