Holiness is such a huge topic that it can actually sound so unattainable that we end up fearing or simply avoiding it.
The truth is that holiness originates in and comes from God Himself. He lives inside us if we invite Him to, bringing His very nature and presence into our being.
Holiness cannot be achieved by us. It is from Him, for Him, because of Him, and to Him. As we look increasingly like Him, it brings Him glory and points others to Him.
This is amazing news; we can't create our own holiness.
We do however need to line our lives up with His truth and constantly surrender to Him, allowing Him to change and transform us. We need to submit to His plan, believe His ways, choose Him, walk out what He does in us and be who He has called us to be.
Holiness is filled with humility, righteousness, truth, perfection, purity and joy. Wouldn't it be amazing if our lives always and increasingly reflected the very heart and character of God to the world around us; showing His attributes so that others can meet and know Him too?
This is the purpose. God on the throne. God glorified. Jesus made famous. Truth winning. His light shining bright. Us loving and following Him with our lives.
Let's be holy as He is Holy. Let's keep saying yes!
