3 Practical Ways On How To Live Holy

Here are 3 practical ways on how to live holy

The goal of every Christian is to make heaven and this can only be achieved by living a life of holiness. Living a life of holiness means living a life void of sin. Many Christians think that this is not possible in this present world of ours. They feel that it is almost impossible to live a life free of sin. Do you also think so? 

 A life of holiness is one that is set apart for the glory of God. It's a life of righteousness. Christians are admonished to live a life of holiness even as God is holy. Living a life of holiness is a commandment from God because the bible tells us that without holiness, no man can see the Lord. So as Christians, holiness is our ticket to access God's kingdom. However, most Christians find it difficult to live a life of 100% holiness. Some say it is impossible to live a life of 100% holiness, especially in this present world as it is filled with evil and atrocities. The sad thing is that 99.9% holiness is equivalent to zero holinesses as God requires complete holiness. How then do we attain this complete holiness?

 

Here are 3 practical ways on how to live holy:

1. Regular studying of the word of God: This is one of the most practical ways on how to live a life of holiness. The bible says in the book of Psalm 119: 11 "Thy word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against thee". If you place God's word in your heart, it will be difficult for you to commit sin. How then do you place God's word in your heart? This is by the regular studying of God's word. Study his word every time. Study his word day and night. 

Have you noticed that you think of what you constantly watch, see or hear? For instance, when you watch a horror movie, you might end up having a terrible nightmare. This is because of what you watched earlier. So, if you study the word of God constantly, you would end up thinking about it. The word of God is a powerful tool in overcoming sin. If you study the word of God constantly, it prevents you from committing a sin.

It's advisable you study God's word immediately you wake up in the morning. This helps to guide you throughout the day. Even as you go on with your daily activity, try to ruminate on what you've studied. It's best you seek God early. 

 

2. Ask the holy spirit for help: the truth is that you can't do this on your own. You can't live holy except the holy spirit intervenes. Humanly speaking, it is impossible to live holy. This is why we must daily cry for God's holy spirit to empower us and strengthen us. Without his spirit, we are nothing and we would give in to the flesh. When we have the spirit of God in us, we become empowered to overcome the flesh. 

 

3. Set a daily goal: this is another practical way on how to live holy. This has practically worked for me and it has proven effective. When you wake up, decide that you won't commit any sin that day. You can get a score sheet for this purpose. When the day is almost over, ruminate over your activities of that day. If you didn't commit any sin that day, mark yourself correct. Perform this for a week, then a month. When you do this constantly, you become so conscious that you find it difficult to commit sin. 

 

In summary, living a life of holiness is very possible in this present world of ours. The bible says that with God, nothing is impossible. So, it is possible to live a life of holiness if you have God by your side. Regular studying of his word and praying would help you abstain from sin. Also, remember that you can't do this on your own. You are in need of help and the assistant of the holy spirit. Also, set goals for yourself such as daily goals, weekly goals, and monthly goals. If you feel blessed by this post, don't forget to share it with your loved ones.
