Holiness is not thought of as a virtue anymore. How comfortable we are to add God to our lives with little or no change necessary on our part which is not the message of the true gospel. “Repent” was an indispensable word to those who proclaimed the Word of God. To be holy is the opposite of being “common” or “profane.” God is holy, His people must also be distinct, separate from the world and its ways. We are to be holy to be like God, our Father, who called us to be holy. Those commanded to be holy are the children of God. Only His children are able to do so, by His grace and through His Spirit.1 Peter 1:14-15
