Definition of HOLY::
Exalted or worthy of complete devotion as one perfect in goodness and righteousness; having a divine quality
I've sometimes wondered what being Holy meant. Did it mean try to be perfect? Don't try to mess up? If so holy would never be a word used to describe me.
Then I heard somewhere it's referring to being set apart. Different.That you are now somehow different, and live it so they want it too!! As in let the old you and the life you once led die off and let the new one grow. Let that be what people see. Now that's more attainable.
Oh how the devil tries to swoon me with his lies of striving to be perfect. But the truth is we will never be "good enough" to get into heaven, that's why we needed Jesus. He paved the way for us. I try to take it one day at a time and live each day so that I end of it I want to be able to picture God smiling down on me and saying "Job well done."
I hope to strive to do my best and give myself slack when I do mess it up.
