Strive to be Holy


Strive to be holy,

Put God first in your life.

Be filled with His Spirit,

Not with confusion and strife.


Pray to God always.

Attend the church of your choice.

Give praise to His Holy Name.

Worship Him with your voice.


Pray for others around you,

That may need help on this earth.

Tell them of your Father.

Tell them of your re-birth.


Share what you have with others.

Don’t waste your life away.

He has given you so much.

Be sure to thank Him when you pray.


God put us first always.

He gave His Son for all.

He will send us His Spirit,

To keep us from the fall.


Place Him above all others.

Remember where blessings come from.

Grace comes from the Father,

Through His Spirit and His Son.


Do as He would have you.

Ask for direction each and every day.

Count your many blessings,

As you get on your knees and pray.


Strive to be Holy,

God will help you now.

You are His favored child,

And He will help your somehow.

Ephesians 1:4

According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

To put God first in your life is a choice. He calls for His people to be holy and not of this world. He has a place set apart for His children. Jesus is preparing heaven for us. His church is His bride and He will come back for His church when Father God tells Him it is time. We should be preparing for that coming everyday of our lives. We cannot be perfect, but we should strive to do all that Jesus taught us on this earth. He showed love to all of mankind. He clothed the naked, gave food to the hungry, helped the widows, healed the blind and the lepers, and even raised Lazarus from the dead. Jesus walked a Holy life among sinners and with the same temptations, since He was made flesh through a human birth. He felt sorrow, betrayal and fear as He faced a horrible death on the cross for all of mankind. We need to strive to be more like Jesus every day of our lives. He wants us to walk in love.
