A distorted view of holiness causes many Christians to stop short of complete surrender to God. They imagine a holy person as some kind of religious fanatic or an isolated monk. Others think that holiness has only to do with the way a person dresses or socializes.
Tragically, some believers continue to wrestle with their childhood experiences with strict, legalistic parents or churches. I have heard some confess, "I tried to live up to the high expectations of my parents or pastor, but I have failed many times. I just can't live the Christian life!" I agree. It is impossible to live a holy life on your own. Even with our best efforts, we will always fail. We can never become holy in our own strength.
This is the secret: We can live a holy life if we yield to the Holy Spirit. Jesus is the only person to ever live a holy life, and now He resides within every believer through His Holy Spirit. His presence and power give us the strength to live a holy life moment by moment.
Holy, righteous living is the secret to a life of joy, power, victory, and fruitfulness. When we are holy, we are set apart and separated from sin for God's special use. God gives us the power to experience a whole new life based on His holiness and purity.
Your View of God Really Matters ...
Benjamin Franklin said, "Continuing to do the same thing over and over again while expecting different results is the definition of insanity." Today, stop trying to live a holy life through human effort. Instead, yield to the indwelling Holy Spirit moment-by-moment and let Him be in control.

Some might give their lives for good people, but God sent His Son to die for sinners, including the ones who put that Son on the cross. No higher demonstration of love is possible.
