God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. ~1 Thessalonians 4:7~

My Child,

>How does the word “holiness” hit you? Does it seem like an outdated and old-fashioned concept? Does it sound like a destination too removed from everyday reality for you to reach?

I want you to be holy, but I’m not asking you to get there in your own power. In fact, that’s not even possible. Your holiness is going to involve cooperation between your humanity and my deity. It will involve my filling your spiritual tank with the grace of my Son and the power of my Spirit. But you’ll still have to turn the key, put your life in gear, and stay on the narrow road.

Your Map and Navigator,

>God
