Lord, You are the God of love. You are also the God of holiness. We like to hear about Your love. It makes us feel good. We’re not so keen on hearing about Your holiness. You are the holy God. You are the God who calls us to be holy. Help us, Lord, not to be content with the half-truth, contained in the words, “All you need is love.” We do need love – but we also need holiness. Help us to “strive … for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord” (Hebrews 12:14).
