Wholly Holy

“We forget that God’s primary goal is not changing our situations or relationships so that we can be happy, but changing us through our situations and relationships so that we will be holy.”

— Paul David Tripp

pure heart

“So you must live as God’s obedient children. Don’t slip back into your old ways of living to satisfy your own desires. You didn’t know any better then. But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy. For the Scriptures say,
‘You must be holy because I am holy.’” 

— 1 Peter 1:14-16 (NLT)


Chasing for holiness paves the way for a life of wholly holiness for God that allows us to traverse the grand pursuit of the ultimate END in life — the pursuit of God
…a never ending chase for the Sole Prime Mover of life and beyond.

Chase holiness. Chase HIM.

Salvation’s End

“…you are a chosen people… that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” — 1 Peter 2:9

You are chosen. 
Billions of people in the world, and you are chosen.
Chosen to be blessed, chosen to be loved, chosen to be saved.
Out of nothingness and insignificance, you were made important and relevant.
You play the starring role in the greatest rags-to-riches movie ever told in the universe.
But the story does not end there; your life story does not stop at salvation. No.
You were chosen for one ultimate purpose – worship.
 
Your salvation is not for yourself, but for God! 
You are given the greatest honor of being chosen with the specific purpose of worshiping Him!
If worship is not the ultimate purpose of your salvation, then you are missing the best part of being saved!
Worship is the place of abundant blessings, richest fellowships, and incomparable fulfillment!
 
You were bought with the highest price for a reason.
Praise Him – daily, honestly, passionately.
That is true salvation’s end.
 

“We are saved to worship God. All that Christ has done for us in the past and all that He is doing now leads to this one end.”
— A.W. Tozer

Life Redefined

“What actually took place is this: I tried keeping rules and working my head off to please God, and it didn’t work. So I quit being a “law man” so that I could be God’s man.

Christ’s life showed me how, and enabled me to do it. I identified myself completely with him. Indeed, I have been crucified with Christ. My ego is no longer central. It is no longer important that I appear righteous before you or have your good opinion, and I am no longer driven to impress God.

Christ lives in me. The life you see me living is not “mine,” but it is lived by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. I am not going to go back on that.”

— Apostle Paul

“The meaning of life can only be found in the One who created it.”
