“Holiness” and “eternal life”–aren’t those great promises? It can be easy to think, “Well, I’m forgiven, so now I can live how I want to–I’m safe.” But how can we be holy when we are still thinking of pleasing self? Jesus’ commitment to us took Him to a painful death on the cross. Shouldn’t my commitment to Him be more than accepting of His salvation and then returning to the way I lived before? Lord, let me live in a way that reflects Your holiness.
