“The Highway of Holiness” (Isaiah 35:8) – It’s  the highway of the heart. It’s the highway of hope. It’s the highway to heaven. 

 * Holiness is more than external conformity to a set of moral teachings. Holiness begins to grow in us when our hearts belong to Jesus, when Jesus lives in us.

* Holiness doesn’t take away from our life. Holiness gives us hope for the future. We begin to see ourselves in terms of God’s purpose of love. He hasn’t given up on us. He’s working in us to make us more like Jesus. 

 * Holiness leads us beyond our earthly journey. It leads us on to our heavenly destination. We’re not saved by our own holiness. We’re saved by God’s grace. By His grace, our Heavenly Father leads us in the pathway of holiness. He’s leading us on to His eternal glory. 

When we’re walking om the highway of holiness, may we always say, “To God be the glory!” There can be no place for self-congratulation. All we can say is “Thank You, Lord.”
