1 John 2:12-14

I am writing to you, little children, because your sins have been forgiven you for His name’s sake. I am writing to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning. I am writing to you, young men, because you have overcome the evil one. I have written to you, children, because you know the Father. I have written to you, fathers, because you know Him who has been from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, and you have overcome the evil one.
1 John 2:12‭-‬14 NASB

🌹God of all creation,  praise and glory to Your name for sending Jesus, Your Son. I was found as a child needing milk when Jesus found me, washed me, sanctified me and justified me!! Hallelujah I have been forgiven in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of my God. I know the Father because I know the Son and keep His commandments! Hallelujah!!!
As I grow in faith and encounter tribulation in the world, I shall experience peace knowing You, Jesus, have overcome the world. I will endure, overcoming the evil one because I will be strong in the strength of Your might.
I want to grow to full maturity believing in what was from the beginning, and by what I have experienced concerning the Word of Life. Your Word fully abiding in me. Prepare me to bow before Your heavenly throne unashamed Lord my God. In the perfect name of Jesus I pray, amen.
Acts 13:38/1 Corinthians 6:11/John 14:7/1 John 2:3/John 16:33/Ephesians 6:10/1 John 1:1/John 5:38 NASB

The Holiness in Me

Do I have any holiness in me?

For I am the Lord who brought you up from the land of Egypt to be your God; thus you shall be holy, for I am holy.'”
Leviticus 11:45 NASB

We are to be holy as God is holy. So how does that happen? Can I just be holy because God is holy?

In the Old Testament Holy God resided in the temple. In the Holy of Holies. It was a sanctified, cleansed, holy area of the temple.

In the New Testament we are the temple where the Holy God resides now. In the heart where God has cleansed us by the blood of Christ, is sanctifying us everyday, where holiness, His holiness resides.

How can you receive this holiness?

Peter said to them, “Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Acts 2:38 NASB

A repentant heart baptized in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sin is the necessary step to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

I baptized you with water; but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”
Mark 1:8 NASB

And when He had said this, He breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit.
John 20:22 NASB

and put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.
Ephesians 4:24 NASB

🌹 Jesus is the holiness in me.
