Holiness

For about the last month several things have come up, quotes, thoughts, feelings, conversations concerning holiness.

Here are a couple of the quotes.

“… God is much more interested in making us holy than He is in getting a job done.” Elisabeth Elliot

“When I encounter a Buddhist priest, I meet a holy man. When I meet a Christian leader, I meet a manager.” Korean leader (this one kind of haunts me)

Scripture too.

“For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight.” Eph. 1:4

“Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.” Heb 12:14

“… for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” I Pet 1:16 (referencing the many times the phrase occurs in the old testament)

The one thought that keeps sounding in my head, and resonating inside, is that I need to be a Holy Man.

If you’ve got any thoughts on becoming a Holy Man, let me know.
