What does it mean to be holy?

“Be holy, because I am holy” (1 Peter 1:16).

What does it mean to be holy?

Do we make ourselves holy? Are we to turn ourselves into modern-day Pharisees – people who regard ourselves as superior to other people?

No! The way of true holiness is centred on Christ – not ourselves. It is centred on what he has done for us – and what he does in us.

“You were redeemed …  with the precious blood of Christ … For you have been born again … through the living and enduring word of God …
… this is the word that was preached to you” (1 Peter 1:18-25).
