What Really Is Holiness?

Paul, a bondservant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated to the gospel of God which He promised before through His prophets in the Holy Scriptures…

Romans 1:1-2

The Holy Scriptures.  “Holy” in the original Greek (from the Strong’s Concordance)-

g0040. ἅγιος hagios; from ἅγος hagos (an awful thing) (compare 53, 2282); sacred (physically, pure, morally blameless or religious, ceremonially, consecrated): — (most) holy (one, thing), saint.

Holy is not only something that is set aside as something different from the regular. Holiness is pure.  Full of awe.  Water with a bit of dirt in it is polluted.  Water free from contaminants is pure.  God’s people are free from sin by the work of Jesus as His blood washes us clean and walking by faith makes us not want to fall back into that sin.  We must be pure.

We need to be more focused on holiness to our Father in Heaven.  Only when you are holy by the blood of Jesus, shall you stand before the Father.  We are in awe of Him.  His Word is HOLY!
