Just Curious

Who or what did you think God was going to use

To

Make

You

Holy

Your neighbor

No

You could move

Did you think He was going to use

Your friends or employees

No

They wont always tell you the truth

Because they don’t live with you

They don’t know the truth

And your employees well they want you to pay them

Or maybe did you think God was going to use

Your Pastor

To

Make

You

Holy

I dont know about you

But I want my Pastor to like me

He might not like me if he knows whats in my head

No

This is who and what God wants to use

ToĀ make you Holy

HeĀ wants to use

You

Your Spouse

And your marriage

To make you BOTH Holy

I’m all about seeing my broken leg healed in an instant

But if my leg gets healed

And my husband leaves me

What good is my leg

I can deal with a broken leg

But my husband leaving me

Well that’s another story

And its not a good one

Don’t

You

Miss

This

Don’t miss out

Cry out to God

Say

Fix my blind eyes

All I can see is the splinter in his eye

Her eye

I am blind to the log in my own eye

I truly cannot see it

Help me Lord

Make me HOLY

Hebrew 5:7-14

During the days of Jesusā€™ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him and was designated by God to be high priest in the order of Melchizedek.

We have much to say about this, but it is hard to make it clear to you because you no longer try to understand. In fact, though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of Godā€™s word all over again. You need milk, not solid food! Anyone who lives on milk, being still an infant, is not acquainted with the teaching about righteousness. BUT SOLID FOOD IS FOR THE MATURE, WHO BY CONSTANT USE HAVE TRAINED THEMSELVES TO DISTINGUISH GOOD AND EVIL.

This is a very telling verse!

 

 

One more thing…

As I wrote this post I kept thinking about this song Donnie McClurkin wrote several years ago that I led as a worship leader MANY times and sang as others led it many many more times. I had NO IDEA what I was singing!!! I am beginning to know what this means now. Honestly though my life, our life, is unbelievably awesome becoming Holy is still hard. Not going to lie!!!

Holiness Is What I Long For

Holiness, holiness is what I long for
Holiness is what I need
Holiness, holiness is what You
want from me

Holiness, holiness is what I long for
Holiness is what I need
Holiness, holiness is what You
want from me

So, take my heart and form it
Take my mind and transform it
Take my will and conform it
To Yours, to Yours, oh, Lord

Faithfulness, faithfulness is what Ilong for
Faithfulness is what I need
Faithfulness, faithfulness is what
You want from me

Brokenness, brokenness is what Ilong for
Brokenness is what I need
Brokenness, brokenness is what
You want from me
