A WOMAN OF HOLINESS
First, I want to give you a biblical definition of the word holiness, it means- A unique quality of divinity; consecration to God; spiritual purity.
We are continuing our examination of the proverbs 31 woman and looking at the distinct and extraordinary qualities she possess so that we, as modern day women and daughters of God may live them out in our lives.
Now, I want to emphasize that holiness is a very, very important character quality we must have. We are to be holy in every area of our lives. In our bodies, for our body is the temple of the holy ghost who lives in us. (1Corinthians 6:19-20)
It’s important in how we live our lives on a daily basis. Holiness is so much more than what you wear and how you act on Sunday at church. 2Corinthians 7:1 says- Therefore, having these promises, beloved let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in fear of God. That word “perfecting” means maturing, so we should be “maturing” in holiness. 1Thessalonians 4:7 says- For God did not call us to uncleanness, but in holiness. God called us in holiness to live a lifestyle of holiness.
Holiness is how you carry yourself as a woman. A woman of holiness carries herself in a respectful and dignified way. This is not only in her dress but also in her conversations. 1Peter 1:15-16 says – but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written “be ye holy for I am holy”. Now the word conduct is translated as “conversation”. God wants us to be holy in our behavior, in our talk, and in our dress.
