Verse of the Day

1 Thessalonians 5:23-24

Now may the God of peace make you holy in every way, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ comes again. God will make this happen, for he who calls you is faithful.

1 Thessalonians 5:23-24

The One Who Makes Us Holy

God is the one who makes us holy. No one else can do that. We are born into sin. We have a sinful human nature that causes us to rebel against God. So there is no way of achieving salvation and getting to heaven on our own accord. We need someone to advocate for us, to go before the throne of God on our behalf. He will intercede for us and make us holy if we allow him to. This verse says He will make us holy in every way, our whole spirit, soul, and body. Our whole person.

This does not seem possible, does it? It is possible because God is holy. He can make us holy because that is His job- He knows holiness, He is holiness, and He can make us blameless before His sight. If we allow Him to do this, we will experience Him completely and deeply. He can make all things new.

A Prayer to Remember

Dear Lord,
You are holiness and blameless. Sin can not exist in your sight. You alone are the only one who can make me holy. I will trust in you. Amen.
