Day 30 // May 15
“Perhaps nothing more fully reveals the true character of faith than joy and praise. Instead of thinking that this life of holiness by faith is a life of difficult attainment and continual self-denial, let us praise God that He has made it possible and certain for us. We can be holy because Jesus is our holiness.” Andrew Murray
But as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy” (1 Peter 1:15,16).
Let’s take some time today to ask the Holy Spirit to reveal any sin or disobedience that we may be walking in. Then, as He shows us these areas, let’s repent and ask God to give us a clean heart and to renew a steadfast spirit within us. Father, we praise you for not only making holiness by faith possible but certain for us. We truly can be holy because Jesus our Lord IS holiness. We truly want to be holy because You are holy. Holy Spirit, we ask You to strengthen us in holiness first by enabling us to see the need for greater holiness in our lives. And we commit freshly to You today that, by faith, we will walk clean and holy before You in all things. This is our heart’s cry today.
