A Desire to Be Holy
If the part of the dough offered as firstfruits is holy, then the whole batch is holy; if the root is holy, so are the branches. ROMANS 11:16
Sometimes we overlook the obvious — that the Holy Spirit is holy. And one of the first things the Holy Spirit does is to give us a desire to be holy too.
One Christmas I was looking for a pair of pj’s for my daughter. I found the perfect top from one set and the perfect bottom from another. So I very quickly switched the tops and bottoms of the two sets. I left the store feeling quite pleased. But by the time I got home, I was miserable.
The next morning I went back to the store and confessed what I’d done. The clerk was astonished and not happy. But it was an incredible lesson that gave me an acute awareness of the Holy Spirit in my life. He’d refused to tolerate my deceitful behavior. And I am most grateful!
God is holy! And He works in our lives to make us holy too!
