Can I Be Holy?

This is not a question asked very often, but I believe at times in our lives we have struggled with it. Maybe it was shortly after you accepted Christ and you really wanted to grow in your faith. Maybe it was after a challenging sermon that made you evaluate your Christian journey. It could have resulted from the questions of a caring brother or sister in Christ. In my experience, it is dealt with usually after someone is challenged in their faith, but not commonly considered in our daily lives.


Paul makes no bones about being holy in his words to the Philippians.

“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.” Philippians 4:8-9
