Day 33 // May 18
“The holiness of God is an exceedingly high standard, a perfect standard. But it is nevertheless one that He holds us to. He cannot do less. While it is true that He accepted us solely through the work of Christ, God’s standard for our character, attitudes, affections, and actions is, ‘Be holy, because I am holy.’” Jerry Bridges
A highway shall be there, and a road, and it shall be called the Highway of Holiness.The unclean shall not pass over it, but it shall be for others. Whoever walks the road, although a fool, shall not go astray(Isaiah 35:8).
Let’s pray this together:
Lord Jesus, we are fully committed as Your people to walk on the path of holiness that You have provided for us to walk on through Your blood and empowering grace. We cannot “be holy because You are holy” without You. Continue to mold and shape our character, attitudes, affections and actions towards holiness—towards You! And as we walk on that Highway of Holiness, we also prepare the way for You, Lord Jesus, and make the path straight for You to be seen in our lives by those around us.
