What does it mean to be holy? What does it look like to chase after God? What should that look like in the scope of our lives?
God calls us to follow Him, to become more like Him, and to live the life that He calls us to live, that He has created for us.
Ok, we all know that. That’s a given. But, once again, what should that actually look like in our lives? What should that cause to take place in our lives?
Listen to what Paul tells us today in Romans 13:9-10 for an answer.
For the commandments, “You shall not commit adultery, You shall not murder, You shall not steal, You shall not covet,” and any other commandment, are summed up in this word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
He said if we love, we will not murder. We will not steal, we won’t break any of the commandments.
Love fulfils the law.
That is what it means to be holy. That’s what it looks like to be holy. To love.
Loving your neighbor equals being holy. Because when we love, as it says, we will fulfill these things.
So, how do we do that? How do we love our neighbor in that way?
We love God. We let God’s love fill us. We focus on Him, and His grace will call us to love each other fully and completely.
Today, be holy. Today, fulfill the law. Today, be obedient to what God would have you to do.
Today, love your neighbor. And in that, you will be fulfilling the law.
