See the alphabet of holiness and be sure all of them are aligned to your daily lifestyle
Holiness: see what it means using the alphabets to explain this non optional requisite.
Isaiah 57:15 For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.
O : obedience to God in all things and at all times.
Jeremiah 7:23 But this thing commanded I them, saying, Obey my voice, and I will be your God, and ye shall be my people: and walk ye in all the ways that I have commanded you, that it may be well unto you.
L : love for God . Love Him with all your heart, soul and spirit. How do you do that?
1 John 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
I : integrity. Integrity of heart.
Today, ministers, believers, and sinners in the world lack integrity.
When you talk to your husband, wife, children, pastor any other person.
Let your yes be yes and your no, be no.
1 Kings 9:4 And if thou wilt walk before me, as David thy father walked, in integrity of heart, and in uprightness, to do according to all that I have commanded thee, and wilt keep my statutes and my judgments:
N: newness of life. New creature.
Romans 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
E: escape damnation of hell.
Hell is real. Multitude from the church and the world are thronging there every day. The reason for this is because they lack holiness.
Matthew 23:33 Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
S: seek God first in your life.
Give God His rightful place in you life from this moment.
Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
S: Serve the Lord.
Col 3:23 — Col 3:24 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
Beloved, the grace of God shall help you maintain this non optional lifestyle to guarantee your readiness when our Lord comes.
