2 Corinthians 6:18- 7:1(NET)”…I will be a father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters,” says the All-Powerful Lord. Therefore, since we have these promises, dear friends, let us cleanse ourselves from everything that could defile the body and the spirit, and thus accomplish holiness out of reverence for God.
Henry: We have been praying about this matter for weeks. But you just showed up yesterday and prayed and everything changed. What’s your secret?
Demian: I walk in my sonship as a child of God.
Henry: But we too are children of God. Why is your own special? What is the secret to the special sonship?
Demian: The secret is holiness. Ever since I became more dedicated and consecrated to God, I observed that I could walk more in God’s power.
We can see from today’s scripture that in order to walk in the promises of God for us as His sons and daughters, there is a need for us to be holy. If a believer does not accomplish holiness, he would not be able to appropriate most of the promises of God for him.
How then do we accomplish holiness? The first step is to cleanse ourselves from what defiles. These include places, people, and practices. A believer who still fellowships with unbelievers has not cleaned himself from defilement because he will be defiled through his fellowship with them. The most potent temples and shrines are the mobile ones – – people. Just like you are a temple of the living God, an unbeliever is a shrine of the spirit that controls him, whether it be lust, greed, or pride.
Go into today remembering that in order for you to walk in the great promises of God concerning you, you have to walk in holiness.
Prayer: Lord, help me walk more in Your holiness and experience more of Your power and glory.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
