Preparing our Hearts for the Holidays — Day 2


This name means “the God who sanctifies.” A God separate from all that is evil requires that the people who follow Him be cleansed from all evil.

Leviticus 20:7-8 ESV – 7 Consecrate yourselves, therefore, and be holy, for I am the LORD your God. 8 Keep my statutes and do them; I am the LORD who sanctifies you.

1 Peter 1:13-16 ESV – 13 Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. 14 As obedient children, do not be conformed to the passions of your former ignorance, 15 but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, 16 since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”


You are absolutely holy. You are pure and there is no unrighteousness in You at all. It is also true that my flesh is hostile to You, and does not submit to Your law; in fact, my flesh is unable to submit to Your law. Those who are in the flesh cannot please You (from Romans 8).

I am helpless and hopeless to please You in my own strength. In Your great mercy You saved me, and declared me righteous through Jesus Christ. You have given Your Holy Spirit, Immanuel, God with us always so that I actually can obey You! What amazing grace!

Lord, with my whole heart I seek You; let me not wander from Your commandments. I have stored up Your Word in my heart that I might not sin against You . . .(from Psalm 119:10,11)
