1 Corinthians 3:17
If any man destroys the temple of God, God will destroy him, for the temple of God is holy, and that is what you are. NASB.
You are holy! Set apart by God for His purpose.
Being holy, you are sacred – specially endowed – uniquely gifted by God Himself. You are not an accident in God’s eyes, but a specially designed person waiting to be released in full glory at the resurrection party.
Holiness is an attitude of godliness. It is knowing who you are in Christ. It is understanding we are living stones, built together into the household of God.
You are His workmanship. You are constantly being molded and shaped for Kingdom work. You are being prepared to do good work.
Kingdom work involves every area of your life. From your personal hobbies, to your service in the community. From your house chores, to your employer’s office, your gifts of service add value to the family and business associates is fulfilling God’s purpose for your life.
You are God’s answer for someone’s prayer. When you ask God for your daily bread, how does he send it to you? The person gifted and skilled as a baker prepares it for you.
When you ask God for a house for your family to live in, how does he delivery it to you? The people who construct, sell, and finance the house all come together to answer your prayer.
You say you didn’t ask God but everyone still came together to serve your needs? Isn’t God a God of graceful love who answers our prayers and needs even before we acknowledge His authority in our life? Why? Because you are holy to him.
He wants what is best for you. He designed and gifted you. He has set you apart to participate with Him in His work. And His work is more than serving a local faith community. His work involves the entire universe.
You are Holy because He is holy and He set you apart as holy.
So, stop trying to conform with how the culture defines you. Instead, seek the God who made everything and gives you your uniqueness. Ask Him to show you how to best express yourself through serving others.
You may be pleasantly surprised with the end results. Being holy is not a religious experience but the fulfillment of your potential as God designed you to be.
