What does it really mean to "be holy"? These two little words seem to echo throughout scripture. First Peter quotes Leviticus with God's command: "You shall be holy, for I am holy." Again in Ephesians when we learn that God "chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world to be holy." And in the last chapter of the last book of the Bible we learn that we are to "still be holy".
Our calling to be holy is a challenging one, but living the "normal" alternative often leads to frustration, disappointment, and empty overindulgence. This invitation to be holy challenges us to live our lives set apart; not because God needs us to, but because it is a better way for us to experience and live life.
Brian Christopher Coulter shows us what it means to be holy in today's world and how living into this calling helps us discover and develop our sense of identity, belonging, and purpose. Prepare to be changed and begin living the life God meant for you.
