Matthew 26:1-19

Being Holy

Being holy isn’t based on feelings

I don’t know about you, but on Monday mornings, I don’t often feel all that holy. Thankfully, being holy isn’t based on how I feel at the moment, but on what Christ did for me on the cross. Nor do we have to go through the the ritual cleansings that the Israelites did.

Since God had chosen the nation of Israel to be His special people through which He would fulfill His plan to restore fellowship between Himself and man, God commanded them to be holy because He is holy. Since Jesus had not yet paid the penalty for the sin of all mankind, God put into place the sacrifices and other rituals that would maintain their cleanness before Him. Because they were sinful humans, it was inevitable that they would become unclean – daily. Probably several times a day. So they had to keep doing the ritual cleansings that would allow God to remain in their presence.

Today, those ritual cleansings are no long needed or required because of Christ’s death on the cross. Once we surrender our hearts to Him and as Him to save us from our sins, we are made new. His blood cleanses us from all unrighteousness. He has done the work for us. Once and for all.

To fully understand this verse, we need to understand what it means to be consecrated and what it means to be holy. As a Christian, this verse applies just as much to us as it did to the nation of Israel. God says to each of us, “I am the Lord your God. You shall therefore consecrate yourselves, and you shall be holy; for I am holy.” So if God commands us to consecrate ourselves and to be holy, then we need to know exactly what God is commanding of us.

Consecrate Yourself

When we consecrate ourselves to God, we wholly dedicate ourselves to Him. It is the act of setting yourself aside and dedicating yourself to God. Consecrating involves separating ourselves from anything unclean or sinful so that our relationship to a holy God is not contaminated. It carries the ideas of being sanctified, holy, and pure.

2 Corinthians 6:17 tells us, “Therefore come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you.” Paul also wrote in Romans 12:1-2, “I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God – this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.”

As children of God who have been saved by faith in Christ, we consecrate ourselves when we surrender our lives and will to Him as a living sacrifice and live our lives for the glory of God. Peter wrote: “But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.” (1 Peter 2:9-10)

Be holy.

To understand what it means to be holy, let’s first look at what it means that God is holy. God is absolute perfection. There is no other God. He has no trace of in (James 1:13, Hebrews 6:18). No one can compare to Him (Psalm 40:5). It defines His character. His love is a holy love. Him mercy is a holy mercy. And his anger is a holy anger.

When we look at what it means for us to be holy, we know we are not perfect and without sin. So how, then, are we holy? We are to be distinctly different from the world. We are set apart from the world for the purposes of God. As children of God, we are to live according to God’s standards so that the world will know we belong to Him. God know’s we are not capable of being perfect. Instead He calls us to be distinctly different from the world. Peter tells us how to do this in 1 Peter 1:13-16:

Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”

We Cannot make ourselves Holy

There is absolutely no way that we can make ourselves holy. We only become holy through a right relationship with God by believing in Christ as our Savior. Until we become a child of God, we remain unholy without any hope of becoming holy on our own. However, when we place our faith and trust in Christ and seek His forgiveness for our sins and ask Him to be our Savior then the blood he shed on the cross cleanses us from all sin. In that moment we become a holy child of God, set a part from the world.

So – are you living a consecrated and holy life?

Prayers for Revival: Search Me, O God

by Julia Bruce
CEO & Keynote speaker

Why ask God to “Search Me?”

King Saul accused David of treason and he accused David of not being faithful to God. David, like the rest of us, knew that from time to time his motives were not always right, so in Psalm 139:23, he asks God, ” Search me, and know my heart.” He wanted God to examine his intent – to be sure that there was nothing offensive within him.

God is omniscient – He knows everything, including our thoughts, motivations, and all the things about us that we think we keep a secret. So why pray for God to search our heart? It isn’t for God to discover the offensive things within us. He already knows them. The answer is found in Jeremiah 17:9, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?” The reason I ask God to “search me” is to reveal to me the offensive things that my deceitful heart is keeping me from having a right relationship with God.

A deceitful heart

We can easily fool ourselves into thinking, “I’m not that bad.” We make up excuses for why it is okay for us to do something we shouldn’t. Or we compare ourselves to others who sin more than we do. And we rationalize why it is okay “this time.” At the end of the day, we fall for the lies that our deceitful heart tell us because we think those lies will bring us happiness.

Eve thought eating the forbidden fruit would make her happy. Cain thought killing Abel would make him happy. Joseph’s brother’s thought selling him into slavery would make them happy. Samson thought marrying a Philistine woman would make him happy. David thought sleeping with another man’s wife would make him happy. Solomon had 999 wives and thought each one would make him happy and when they didn’t, he thought #1,000 would be “the one.” The rich young ruler thought his wealth would make him happy. And Judas thought 30 pieces of silver would make him happy. But what all these people had in common was the same lie from their deceitful hearts.

The heart still deceives

Today is no different. The heart has been deceiving us from the Garden of Eden and it still deceives us today. We see it when a woman becomes frustrated after 25 years of marriage because he husband ignores her – so she reconnects with a high school boyfriend, begins an affair, and then divorces her husband.

It is in the college student that grew up in church and was taught how to live for Christ but then leaves those teachings behind to live like the rest of the world.

We see it in dating couples who choose to ignore God’s commands regarding sex before marriage and move in together before the wedding.

It is in the employee who takes company property or is dishonest in the time they claim they worked.

It is in the senior adult who says it is ok to just sit back in the pew because they are “too old” to serve God anymore.

There are countless other ways we can see how the heart deceives us everyday.

Search Me, O God

If we want to see a revival, we need to fall on our knees and with a sincere desire to know the areas where we have been deceived by our wicked hearts, ask God to search our hearts to see if there is any wicked ways within us. But be forewarned! Praying this prayer will bring conviction. God will expect you to make the needed course corrections. It will require you to see yourself in the way God sees you.

You are not likely to like what God reveals to you. But when He does, you will then need the humility to admit your sins and to seek God’s forgiveness and mercy. Then you will need the courage to apply the necessary changes in your life. As the Holy Spirit works within you to transform you into the image of Christ, revival will begin in your heart.

Are you willing to spend time alone with God and ask Him to search your heart and show you the offensive ways that your deceitful heart has been hiding from you?

Did you remember to read your Bible today?

Psalm 119:18

Today’s Bible Reading: June 3

Bible reading image


2 Chronicles 10-12

John 13:18-38

Clicking on the Scripture links above will open a new window where you can read the scripture from the English Standard Version at Biblegateway.com or choose the Bible version you prefer to read. Check back each day to get the Scripture to read in the One Year Bible Reading Plan.

Why read the Bible every day?

Bible Reading is vitally important to growing spiritually. God wants us to hide His Word in our hearts, meditate on it and apply it to our lives. When we have a plan, we are more likely to follow through. Here are eight reasons you should have a daily Bible Reading time:

  • We can find His will for our lives
  • Bible reading is our spiritual nourishment
  • It helps us be able to discern the thoughts and intents of our heart.
  • The Bible instructs us in righteousness
  • It gives us power to overcome trials, heartaches, and sin
  • God gives us many promises, but you won’t know them unless you read about them, memorize them, and know if it’s a promise intended for us today
  • God reveals Himself to us and we learn about Him which strengthens our relationship with Him
  • He also speaks to us through His Word.

Dig into God’s Word today!

Lamentations 3:22-23

Because of the Lord’s faithful love we do not perish, for His mercies never end. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness!

Do you serve in ministry? If so, you’ll want to browse our self-care blogs.

In the series of blogs, we breakdown why people in ministry need to practice self care, explain the differences between stress, burnout, and compassion fatigue, and combine both psychology and Biblical principles to help pastors, missionaries, small group leaders, worship pastors, nursery workers, facility/maintenance staff, religious non-profit staff, and any other ministry staff understand why self-care is crucial to you continuing the work God’s called you to do.

If you can relate to this, then take some time to read our self care blogs.

Test your Bible smarts and see if you can answer our trivia questions. We post a trivia question every other day and the correct answer on the next day. Stop by the trivia page and grab a question or two and see if your friends and family can answer it.

memory verse logoIn 2020 our emphasis is on revival for America with three key words: revive, renew, and redeem. You will begin to see the elements of our website and posts reflect this emphasis. We hope you’ll join us in praying for God to pour out the Holy Spirit with a mighty rushing wind of revival for our nation and around the world.

 

Our key verse for revival is 2 Chronicles 7:14. “If my people who are called by my name shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.  For the past few  weeks, we have been focusing on repentance. This week, we look at the spiritual transformation that takes place when we surrender our heart to God.

This week’s memory verse:

Psalm 95:6

Come, let us worship and bow down;
let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.
