When was the last time you thought about holiness?
God's specific command for holiness: "Be holy, for I am holy," (in Leviticus 11, 19, and in 1st Peter 1) is an idea rephrased and repeated throughout the Bible.
But because of our misunderstandings of sin, holiness, innocence, andGod, His command rings hollow in the action of our faith.
-Sin (we view it as either inevitable or we just go with it)
-Holiness (we view it as unrealistic or we ignore it because there's no immediate payoff)
-Innocence (we view it as subordinate to "experiencing the world"), and
-God (we often think he'll probably let us down-just like so many people do).
But, what if there was a different way?
By entering into God's deep affection, He rewrites our wayward story into a narrative of unwavering devotion, a living, breathing Christian faith distinguished by God's inner-working. In Why Holiness Matters, Tyler Braun tells the story of the Millennial Generation and our need for rescue from our own shame into the light and love of living in God's presence.
