Fortunately, we don’t have to figure out on our own how to be holy; along with the command, He has also given us the ‘How To,’ Amen!  The apostle Peter puts it this way, “His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of Him who called us by his own glory and goodness. Through these He has given us His very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature and escape the corruption in the world caused by evil desires” (2 Peter 1:3-4 NIV).



Sainthood is not a cloak we put on and take off when we feel like it. We are to be saints around the clock, 24/7. It should be our new nature, our state of being. We are to be saints at home, away from home, when we are awake and when we are asleep. We should be saints at all times; in the company of believers as well as in the company of unbeliever, no matter what. ‘Saint’ should be our identity; the identity by which we are known.
