“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 1 Peter 1:14-15

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Do not be conformed to the desires

that you formerly had in ignorance.

Instead, as He who called you is holy,

be holy yourselves in all your conduct;

for it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”

.

– 1 Peter 1:14-15 (NRSV)

REFLECTION…

.

When we accept God’s call

and allow Him to come into our hearts,

we enter into a personal relationship with Jesus

and He changes us and renews us.

As He strips away our weaknesses,

we realise and admit

how ignorant and blind we were without Him.

.

Now that I can see,

I must resist going back to the dark,

to my old ways.

.

Now that I can see,

I want to…I must…

continuously strive to be righteous and holy.

.

The essentials of true holiness,

which a true Christian should focus on

so as to avoid getting side-tracked,

are

love for God and neighbour;

mercy and forgiveness;

as well as justice, faithfulness, and generosity.

..

And so,

holiness should be an interior disposition of our heart

– put it into practice.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Lord, help me put all I receive from You into practice.

Lord, make me holy.
