Waiting In Holiness

Tim told his story, and I listened enviously.

Fear of disappointing his godly mother kept Tim from succumbing to normal teenage temptations associated with peer pressure. He also knew if he did and got caught his parents would come for him and he wouldnít like what they brought.

I wasnít as wise. I didnít want to disappoint my mom either-and I was a believer, but I allowed peer pressure to overtake good judgment. And my parents came. With discipline I didnít enjoy and rules I despised. I wasnít ready for the consequences.

Peter admonished his listeners to live spotless and blameless lives and prefaced it by reminding them Jesus was returning. So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with him. (II Peter 3:14)

Since the time of His return was unknown, it made sense to be continuously ready if they were to avoid unwelcome consequences.

In Christ Iíve received His righteousness, but in practice I have spiritual work to do and only a limited time to accomplish it. My death or His return can occur momentarily. A journey toward spiritual maturity is essential and commanded. Children who donít develop mentally or physically are diagnosed challenged. I am as well if I make no progress toward holiness in my actions, thoughts and attitudes.

Loving God supremely and others as ourselves establishes pure motives, setting us on a spiritual pilgrimage that prepares us to meet our Redeemer.

Reflection: Choose practices that enhance your journey toward holy living. www.lovelinesfromgod.com

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
