Hunger for Holiness (1 Peter)
The word “holy” is one of the most common words in the Bible, and yet is one of the most misunderstood words in our language. God has called us to be holy, but how many people want to be described that way?
There are many Bible words that describe the character and nature of God. We read that: God is Light…God is Love…God is Merciful…God is our Shepherd…God is our Provider…God is our Healer…God is the Almighty One…And many more.
And then there is one word that describes the character and nature of God more than any other in the Bible:
God is HOLY.
Holiness is the primary attribute of God.
Holiness is conforming to the Character of God.
Holiness is essential for living as a stranger in a strange land.
Holiness is the absolute key to living Pure in an Impure World.
