Development of Holiness
2 Corinthians 7:1 TPT
Beloved ones, with promises like these, and because of our deepest respect and worship of God, we must remove everything from our lives that contaminates body and spirit, and continue to complete the development of holiness within us.
A wonderful reminder that God still loves you and He wants you to value the relationship you carry with Him despite any situation. We think that when God restricts us from a particular thing is because He does not want to give us the freedom which is not true. He does that to see us living as liberated spirits fulfilling His purpose on this planet. His instructions protect our minds, bodies and also spirits.
In the initial part of the scripture, it speaks about the continuation of development in holiness. In this context, Paul is addressing the church about the completion of holiness within them. The instruction given by Paul is that there are two motivational forces that leads to the complete development of holiness within them. Firstly, knowing the promises, destiny and purpose of your life by God. Secondly, the deepest respect and worship of God.
Our promises of God can be foiled if we compromise and live an unholy life. Also, our worship can be contaminated if we let our holiness be taken over by other things. If these two forces can be our reason to pursue holiness, then we will be able to walk in everything that God has planned for us. In order to fulfil these promises, we must remove everything that contaminates our body, mind and spirit. It is necessary for us to internationally removes the influences over our body mind and spirit.
Let us pursue holiness because of the promises waiting for us and our calling to worship.
