Holy Living

If you were to close your eyes and envision what your holy life looks like, what do you see? You see, it’s different, to a degree, for everyone, and I believe God designed it that way. Please hear me, I am not saying that some people should read the Bible, while others should pray. No, that is not at all what I mean. I want you to look at the very heart and mind that the Father delicately created in you, and see how He made them tick. Are you a “up at 5am” person, or maybe one who likes to read in the quiet of the late night. Are you in a season where time is limited and little hands are ever-grabbing for you, or one where time is structured and there is a lot that can be spent alone? Look at those things, and look at how your heart and mind love to be fed. Seek out what your holy life looks like.

It’s easy to look at what other’s do and think that it must be done that way by you too. But we aren’t instructed to set a specific time and day for when we pray, when we read, and when we worship. Those things are to encompass all of what we do.

Our lives are to be lived out holy. To live is “to continue in existence, operation, memory, etc”.

“So roll up your sleeves, put your mind in gear, be totally ready to receive the gift that’s coming when Jesus arrives. Don’t lazily slip back into those old grooves of evil, doing just what you feel like doing. You didn’t know any better then; you do now. As obedient children, let yourselves be pulled into a way of life shaped by God’s life, a life energetic and blazing with holiness. God said, “I am holy; you be holy.””-1 Peter 1:13-16 (MSG)

Seek out what your holy life looks like when it’s energetic and blazing with holiness. And live it!
