To be sinless or sin free does not make you Holy, because it can become an idol. Holiness is about your connection to ME. When you choose ME over the pain or the pleasures of life, this produces a result.
Holiness is not perfection for perfection’s sake. It is a consequence of a heart decision to walk with ME, talk with ME and to commune with ME. To be Holy is to be in relationship with ME and to let Love lead.
Those that know MY Word, but do not know ME are lovers of religion. Relationship is better. The religious among you are concerned with impressing men, making them by default gods. Why manufacture a god, when you can worship ME freely?
This is the great mystery of a man’s heart: sin is harder to commit then obedience. Sin has an eternal cost, while obedience pays a dividend. Take MY advance: walk in MY statutes and ignore any status given by man.
1 Samuel 16:7
But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look on his appearance or on the height of his stature, because I have rejected him. For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”
