"A holy life will make the deepest impression. Lighthouses blow no horns, they just shine."

Hey Joy!
So the question that needs to be asked is, who defines holiness?
"God" is the the most obvious answer - but I wonder if we are ready to live the kind of holiness God intends. What is holiness?

I just preached on this last week. It is definitely a great question....and not easily "defined" in a few words.

In Genesis 3, Adam and Eve ate of the fruit and immediately covered themselves. At that point they knew they were naked and felt shame, so they tried to hide.

I would say holiness is being able to stand naked! When I can stand before God letting him see every part of me, my past, my thoughts,my victories and failures, my intentions, hopes and dreams...everything....and not need to hide anything; desiring to show it all to him and feel no shame....that is holiness.
