Believe it or not but I have spoken to some people and they think that to be holy means to be odd. I thought that was quite interesting. No, we’re to be different without doubt. More importantly, we have to many Christians doing unbiblical things who claim to be holy when in reality they are just odd.
Leviticus 11:44 says; “For I am the LORD your God: Ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy: Neither shall ye defile yourselves with any manner of creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”
Holiness is not achieved by what we have on, where we sleep and eat, or how many spiritual things we do. It is not a matter of dress or style of hair. Even if we live in a commune, monastery, or convent, that doesn’t make us holy either. There is no holiness in a hole.
So what makes us holy then? God makes us holy by the blood of the lamb, His son Jesus Christ. And in return of this great love, we endeavor to live holy lives because we love Him with our all. Holiness is a state of being, not doing. It is God-induced. God developed character trait that grows in us as we grow in our love relationship with God.
That my friends is what it means to be holy. God bless you all and have a wonderful day.
