Live a Holy Life

The words "For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. 1 Thessalonians 4:7" on a blue background
"For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a Holy Life."
~1 Thessalonians 4:7

The word 'holy' sounds so...so...churchy, religious, old school - like it belongs to fancy highly-decorated sanctuaries and old relics under glass. But, did you know what is actually means? The word 'holy' means 'to be set apart for a purpose' - God's purpose. Set apart. Like the china our grandmothers saved for special occasions.

We are holy. What? Yes, we are. Remember that old china? Some of it was discolored or had fine cracks running through it, but it was still saved and used. Teacup handles glued back on - not disposed of, still useful. Use-full. Full of use. Just like us. Paul was writing about living a life pleasing to God in his letter to the Thessalonian church - these words apply just as much to current day, as it did then.
God has set each and every one of us apart - has made us holy. We have a unique purpose. "But my life is mundane" - no matter how dull and boring it may seem, there is one goal - "whatever you do, do all things for the glory of God." 1 Corinthians 10:31b We can't all smuggle Bibles into dark countries, but we can reflect Christ in our every day-ness. It could be in your positive attitude, your smile, your acts of kindness, your care for those in need.
YOU ARE HOLY and God's special occasion is EVERY occasion.
Have a blessed day!
