How is it possible for me to be holy?

Job 14:4Who can bring purity out of an impure person? No one!

You cannot create holiness in yourself because you were born with a sinful nature.

Leviticus 21:8“I, the Lord, am holy, and I make you holy.”

God is the only one who can make you holy. Holiness means to reflect God’s nature in every way. The word holy is translated from a Hebrew word that means “to be separate,” “to be set apart.” As such, holiness includes not only moral integrity, but also your entire outlook on life as you realize that you are in the world but not of it. God promises to help you break free from the attractions of this world so that you can live for him.

Ephesians 1:4Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes.

1 Corinthians 1:30Christ made us right with God; he made us pure and holy, and he freed us from sin.

You become holy not by what you do but by what Jesus did for you, cleansing and forgiving you from sin.

Deuteronomy 14:2You have been set apart as holy to the Lord your God, and he has chosen you . . . to be his own special treasure.

God makes you holy by setting you apart as special for him.

Colossians 1:22Yet now he has reconciled you to himself through the death of Christ in his physical body. As a result, he has brought you into his own presence, and you are holy and blameless as you stand before him without a single fault.

Through Christ’s death you can stand blameless in God’s presence.
