GoodNews Daily Devotional 14 December 2021
TOPIC: You Are Different
TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: 1 Peter 1:16 – Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
MESSAGE: Holy is not a spiritual word that you must try to live up. The word holy simply means “to be separate”. Put that revision into the scripture and you will get, “Be ye separate; for I am separate”. Jesus is in a class all by himself. He has no competition. The word “be” is not a commandment but a more of a reminder of who you are. You do not become holy; you are automatically holy because God is holy.
You are not of this world. Once you have received the life of Christ you were removed
from corruption and born of the incorruptible seed. This is good news! Read the Word daily to become more confident in who you are. You do not go to the places that you used to because of your works but because of the goodness of the Lord! He is far from any other god and so are you.
Being separate is not a weakness. You stand out among the crowd when you do what the Word says you can do. People will be amazed and wonder how you obtain your results outside of the worldly system.
you do it God’s way, you get God-results. Begin to produce what the Word says you can do. Nothing can prevent you from making a mark on this earth. You have the Holy God backing you up and the Host of Heaven. You are victorious through Christ Jesus! You are not an average person; you are the God-kind.
I am holy because God is holy. I will always make an impact wherever I go. I am different from the world because of Jesus. Praise the Lord!
