You’re As Holy As You Want To Be

Bird on a faucetI think that it was A. W. Tozer who said: “Every man is as holy as he really wants to be.”
In our position before God we are given all of Christ’s holiness. But in our daily experience holiness is a choice which we continually are making.
Choose holiness even when it is difficult, inconvenient, odd, costly, misunderstood, extra work, unseen, unpopular & radical. Choose holiness. It’s the exquisite road less traveled.
Of course our Lord Jesus is ever perfect holiness, but He chose holiness at every turn of his earthly ministry. And His choices of holiness we’re very costly!
As The Lord Jesus’ follower you are to choose personal holiness.  This is a choice that only you can make moment to moment to moment.
This bird got water because it wanted it!
“As obedient children, do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance, but like the Holy One who called you, be holy yourselves also in all your behavior; because it is written, you shall be holy for I am holy.”  (1 Peter:1:14-16)
