Matthew 5:8 tells us that, “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.” In II Samuel 22:21 it says, “The Lord has dealt with me according to my righteousness; according to the cleanness of my hands He has rewarded me.” The bottom line is we can only serve one Master…it’s either God or self. But when we dedicate our life to God, consecrating our whole self -mind, body, and spirit to Him… we will be able to stand blameless before Him, spreading out clean hands in prayer, our conscience clear.
Isaiah 35:8 ” And a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness.”
A prophet’s lifestyle must be that of holiness – a life of prayer, obedience, and integrity. In leading this life of consecration, they can then proclaim the message of holiness, that we may follow. Sanctification… it’s not a word you hear batted around much in this modern-day world…but it’s something essential in the process of making us holy. By allowing the Holy Spirit to work in our lives, our actions and behaviors will be consecrated unto God. To be sanctified is to be set apart by the Lord…it’s not a one time happening, but rather a life-long journey down the highway called holiness.
