Live In Holiness

1 Kings 2:4; Psalm 119:33-40

…If thy children take heed to their way, to walk before me in truth with all their heart and all their soul, there shall not fail thee (said he) a man on the throne of Israel.

Today's discussion is an adaption from this month's devotional where our overall theme for the month is God's chosen leaders where we have looked at several of His leaders and their character which is to say they walked closely with God.

If the question were raised, How do one live in holiness? The writer of 1 Kings, David encourages all to take a careful look at your lifestyle and stake heed to it and then walk in true holiness by obeying God's commands. David learned this painful but valuable lesson of walking closely with God as it opened the door to God's blessing and His truth. When David failed to walk according to God's commands he suffered, but David would go to God in sincere prayer and with a repentant heart asking for forgiveness.

You and I today can live in holiness by living according to God's Word as we have God's Word the Bible and the indwelling Holy Spirit as our guide. It is noteworthy to say that holy living requires a willing heart and a humble spirit; in doing so we give honor and glory to a Sovereign God.
The world will see God in you through your holy living. Live holy!
