SINCERE MILK: Children Daily Devotional Guide
THURSDAY FEBRUARY 20, 2020
TEXT: HEBREWS 12:11-16
Key Verse: “Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord” (Hebrews 12:14).
Holiness is a life completely free from sin. A life that has no stain or blemish. Holiness is the nature of God. God desires all His children to be holy as He is holy. No one can be holy without surrendering his life to Jesus.
Sin made man to be separated from God. God did not like the separation between Him and man. He therefore sent His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to die for the sins of the world. Anyone who believes in Him and repents from his sin will be forgiven and cleansed from sin. This is the beginning of having a fellowship with God.
After this first step, one must strongly desire and pray for the sanctification experience. This is the blessed experience that gives the believer holiness of heart and life. It is referred to as the second work of grace. Holiness gives unlimited access into God’s presence. God answers the prayers of one who is holy.
God desires that you should be holy as He is holy. He promised to make you holy, and He has made provision through the shed blood of Jesus Christ to cleanse all outward and inward sin. Anyone who fails to be holy will not get to heaven. Repent now and be made holy.
Prayer: Dear God, keep me holy so that I will see You.
