The words “be holy” are found thirty-nine times in the Scriptures. The first occurrence is in Exodus 22:31 when God said, “Ye shall be holy men unto me.”
I can hear His voice saying this to me. He speaks so beautifully. I can hear the compassion in His voice, and yet I hear the urgency and fervency of His voice in Leviticus 11:44, “I am the Lord your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy.” This does not mean that we should be hyper-spiritual. None of us is perfect in our experience. But it does mean to be separated unto a thorough commitment to the Cross, to the mandates of God, and to the promises of God.
Listen to God’s voice as He says to you, “Be separated unto Me, My plan, My Person, My provision, and My peace. I chose you by My standard of mercy, and by My standard of grace, and I want you to be holy.”
Because of the Finished Work of Calvary, we are in a place with God that has no limits. That place is called “love.” We are living in the presence of love, and God’s love has no limits!
