Seeking to be Holy

For I, the Lord, am your God;
and you shall make and keep yourselves holy,
because I am holy.
(Leviticus 11:44)


Some seek to be holy because
God commands it,
and because they
fear Him.

Some seek to be holy because
God commands it,
and because they
love Him.

Fear
is a good reason
to seek.

Love
is better.


Learn to love God,
and you will become
holy.



For the love of God is this, that we keep his commandments.
And his commandments are not burdensome.

– St. John the Apostle
