2 Cor 6:17-7:1

7 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. KJV

Uche: Why do you think Kemi is more holy than the other sisters in fellowship?

David: Don't you see the way she dresses? She doesn't even use jewelry, and she is more serious looking.

Uche: I don't believe someone is holy because of those reasons. I am Holy because Christ lives in me and I have forsaken all my sins.

Uche was right but David (like many Christians today) had the wrong perception of holiness.

Holiness is not a form or a code of conduct that you take upon yourself, holiness is a nature that you inherit because you are a child of God. It is the real nature of God and we walk in holiness by walking in the spirit. What today's Bible text shows us is that when we perfect holiness, we will now truly be able to walk in God's promise of sonship. We also see from today's Bible text that the way to perfect holiness is to cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of flesh and spirit.

What does filthiness of flesh and spirit mean? What are the things that defile the flesh and the spirit? We shall study these subsequently.

Go into today knowing that when you start truly walking as a son of God on the earth, you are walking in a realm of no limitations and this is God's will for you.

Prayer: Thank you lord for your grace to empower me do your will. I pray you help me know and do your will in my life. Amen
