HOLINESS IS NOT ONLY A NATURE, BUT ALSO AN ACT.


Every believer is made holy by reasons of Him coming to Christ and letting him take control of all he has got. Or simply by him believing in the finished work of Christ. It means that the believer is born again and takes the nature of God. And one of the nature of God he take is holiness because God is holiness personified.
.

The nature of every individual is seen by actions. The nature of a Lion is seen when he acts like the King of the jungle who roars, and kills his prey with courage.
.
God expect every Christ show forth the nature of holiness by their actions.
.
As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance:
1 Peter 1:14 KJV
But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;(lifestyle)
1 Peter 1:15 KJV
.
Verse 14 talks about their way of life or their conducts. There is a "BUT" in verse 15, showing how the believer should live his life. It is obvious that our lifestyle will show what nature we are really displaying. But you can only act Holy, when you have the nature of Holiness.
.
It is a commandment.
.
Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
1 Peter 1:16 KJV
.

KingHenzy cares.
