Holiness is so much more than NOT SINNING! When you start living a holy life your entire worldview changes and you find that you no longer look at things in the same way you used too. Your desires change and you begin to have a different perspective on things that used to have power over you. You start to assume that role as one of Christ’s ambassadors that you were born into, and through the gift of the Holy Spirit you begin to “walk in the light as He is in the light” (1 John 1:7).
True holiness grows out of the process of sanctification of the spirit and it frees you completely! Your desires become His desires. You start to see things as the Lord does. God changes what really matters to you. If you are born again, the Spirit of God makes the change very evident in your real life and thought. Your life changes because you have changed. You are now a new creation in Christ Jesus and those old things have passed away.
“If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” —2 Corinthians 5:17
