The life of holiness is not an expression of our own moral virtue. It is an expression of the holy character of God being reproduced in us: 'I am the Lord who sanctify you' (Leviticus 20:8). God wants us for Himself - This is why we must not live the world's way: 'I the Lord am ... holy, and have separated you from the peoples, that you should be mine' (Leviticus 20:26). God has a great purpose for us: 'You shall inherit their land... I will give it to you, a land flowing with milk and honey' (Leviticus 20:24). 'The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly... in Christ Jesus' (1 Timothy 1:14). This is the pathway to holiness: 'By grace you have been saved through faith... for good works' (Ephesians 2:8-10).
