Are We There Yet? ~ July 9

Are We There Yet?

We’re getting closer!

Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. Hebrews 12:14

We are instructed to make every effort to live in peace with all men, but that’s not always possible. Some people don’t want to be at peace with us, and no matter how hard we try, that won’t change.

Being holy is tied directly to our love of God; the more complete our love for Him, the more like Him we will become. God is the essence of holy—just as He is love, He is Holy—and as we become like Him, we will become holy.

It sounds a bit ominous—this being holy—but it’s really not. Holy is merely being what God wants us to be, and what God wants is for us to be as much like Him as we can possibly be. A daunting task should we attempt it of our own volition, but a simple one if we focus on Him and love Him.

As we learn more about God and our love for Him increases, His ways will become clearer and make more sense to us. So keep your eyes on Him, and if He seems too far away, start moving toward Him. You’ll soon discover He wasn’t that far away from you at all.
