Throughout the Word of God, holiness is a standard of living that’s quite common. Besides, we’re under an obligation by God to be holy according to (1 Peter 1:16). Holiness is so significant to the extent that it is the very factor that will determine whether we’ll be able to see the Lord or not (Hebrews 12:14). The good news is that holiness is one of the greatest things that Christ’s death has made it possible for us to walk in (Hebrews 13:12). Obviously, we should be mindful that holiness is completely independent from our own worthiness. It’s based entirely on what Jesus Christ has accomplished on behalf of humanity by His shedding blood along with what He wants to do through us. So, let’s try to examine this scripture verse below.
Temptation is a very serious issue that we have to confront persistently in our walk with the Lord. Truthfully, nobody is above temptation. It’s the very means through which the enemy tries to make inroad into our lives in order to pull us away from God. The way that Satan operates is that he isn’t going to come forcefully in order to drag us into something contrary to what God wants us to do. However, we can be quite sure that in all his guile, he’ll use a much more subtle approach in order to entice us into sin. Therefore, we have to be very mindful of his schemes. The fundamental of temptation is laid upon Satan influencing us to consider doing or indulging into something that’s completely detestable and unacceptable in the sight of God as something that’s okay.
