As followers of Christ, we’re called by God Almighty to lead holy and righteous lives for His own glory (1 Thessalonians 4:7). A holy and righteous life is a form of life that epitomizes the very nature and character of God Himself (1 Peter 1:15; Psalms 145:17). By His divine power, He has given us everything we need for life and for living a godly life (1 Peter 2:4). Holiness is the most elevated of all His attributes (Isaiah 6:3; Revelation 4:8).
One of the greatest blessings that comes from being a Christian is that God saves us simply because He is good and offers us salvation as a gift that does not require any conditions to receive except our willingness to take it. Isn’t that wonderful? Doesn’t that prove God is a loving God? God does not only provide us salvation through His Son Jesus Christ, He gives us the awesome privilege to become His children. In fact, by becoming His children, we have the right to inherit His promises.
