holiness

“Holiness is not mentioned much these days.  The word tastes strange on our lips, sounds odd in casual conversations, and appears sidelined in much current Christian literature.  This is surprising since in the Scriptures God is the Holy One who wills holiness for each of us.  Writing to scattered pilgrims, Peter quotes an ancient text that underlines his divine imperative: ‘You shall be holy, for I am holy’ (1 Peter 1:16).” – Trevor Hudson, Discovering Our Spiritual Identity (p46)

Glory to God!
