Verse of the Day

“But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: "Be holy, because I am holy.”- 1 Peter 1:15-16
Wouldn't it be nice to be able to wake up one morning and say, "From today on I am going to be holy." Unfortunately it is not that easy. There are just too many things that entice our flesh, no matter how much our hearts don't.
It takes extreme discipline for our hearts to overcome the flesh. One must learn what are the temptations which are hardest on them. For many it is food, and is an unconscience action. And let's face it no one really wants to give up those things that make us "feel" good.
Remember though the blessings and greatness that awaits us in heaven. To get them we must live holy lives here on earth. We don't need to be perfect, but we do need to be obedient and loving toward God.
