YOU ARE GOD’S HOLY PEOPLE!

Sis. Stella Dhinakaran

In this sinful world, there are many people who do not know the Lord. These people, when they face troubles, problems and burdens, they struggle not knowing what to do next and become desperate and dejected. But, those who accept the Lord Jesus as their Lord and Saviour, from that day they become His own chosen people (1 Peter 2:9). God miraculously delivered the people of Israel from Pharaoh’s and led them to the Promised Land. He preserved them through the waters of judgment, led them by cloud and fire to the same mountain where he commissioned Moses at a burning bush. Only this time the whole mountain smoulders with his consuming fire. He gives this message through Moses: “For all the earth is Mine. And you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.” (Exodus 19:5,6). Further, He keeps His eyes on them at all times and keeps them under the shadow of His wings so that no unrighteousness or evil touches them.
 A devout mother taught her son daily about the way to salvation and the holy life God wants us to lead in this world. She did not desire that her son should get higher degrees, occupy big positions and earn name and fame when he grew up. All that she desired was that her son should know God deeply, be holy, receive the gifts and power of the Holy Spirit and serve the Lord mightily. But this boy, when he became a young man, led an unholy life without the knowledge of his mother. The dear mother, who heard about the bad conduct of her son, was completely heartbroken. So, with great faith, she fasted and prayed day and night for her dear son. The Lord had compassion on her and wiped away her tears. He saved her dear son from evil ways, anointed him with His Holy Spirit, gave him the gifts and powers of the Spirit and made him a great servant of His to work for the glory of His name. God by His grace also made him acquire higher degrees and become an eminent man which she did not ask from Him.

My dear friends! Do you lead a holy life as our Lord desires? From now on, pray and seek the divine help of the Holy Spirit to change your life from evil ways to righteous ways. When you are filled with His Holy Spirit you will be able to lead a holy life, well pleasing to God. Therefore, present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God (Romans 12:1). Our Lord is faithful to protect you and guide you in the way you should walk. It is He who protects us and guides us to this day. The Holy God wants His children also to be holy in all their conduct (1 Peter 1:15, 16). Therefore, let us be holy as He so desires, with His strength. Yes! It is the Lord who sanctifies us (Leviticus 21:15). And, the offering of the body of Jesus Christ on the cross, enables us to receive this sanctification (Hebrews 10:10).
 
Prayer:
Loving Lord! Give this holy life to me too. Wipe away all my sins by the blood of our Lord Jesus. From today onwards, give me Your grace to lead a holy life like You. In the holy and
blessed name of our Lord Jesus, I pray, AMEN.
