Walking the Path of Holiness

Look for these roadmarkers to help you navigate your spiritual journey.

Spiritual Journey

Some Bible verses seem more demanding, more challenging than others. Perhaps none more so than 1 Peter 1:15-16: “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.’”

How can we mere humans be holy? Seems an impossible feat, yet that is what we are called to be. In Hebrews 12:14, Paul writes that we must “Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.” It sounds like a deal breaker, doesn’t it?”

Isaiah gives us a particularly helpful perspective on holiness. “A highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness; it will be for those who walk on that Way” (Isaiah 35:8).

Turns out holiness isn’t about how you appear to others, but rather where you are headed. There is a path to holiness, and it is up to us to walk that path. Every day!

To make sure you are progressing on the Way of Holiness—and not simply marching in place—look for these “road markers” in your life.

1. You are moving toward being more fully centered on God’s will.
You yearn to serve Him in all things, at all times, to “live and move and have [your] being in Him” (Acts 17:28).

2. You are increasingly aware of what keeps you from Him.

3. You grow more “eager to serve” (1 Peter 5:2).
You pray more, help the poor and needy more and accept more readily the crosses God has given you.

Godspeed as you walk this holy highway!
