• “Lord, I give up all my own plans and purposes, all my own desires and hopes, and accept Thy will for my life. I give myself, my life, my all utterly to Thee to be Thine forever. Fill me and seal me with Thy Holy Spirit. Use me as Thou wilt, work out Thy whole will in my life at any cost, now and forever.” – Betty Scott Stam, 20th Century Martyr

God’s Goal by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 06/27/11

“It seems like as soon as I repent from one thing, God brings a whole other sin area to my attention! I guess I’m glad, but it’s so hard! When can I stop thinking about holiness?”

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: There are a lot of important reasons to pursue holiness. One of them is that holiness is God’s ultimate goal for us. He has eternity in view. He didn’t save us just to make our short time on this earth easier. He wants to make us holy as He is holy, so we can perfectly glorify Him and enjoy Him for eternity.

First John 3:2 says, “We know that when He appears we shall be like Him, because we shall see Him as He is.”

So what’s our response? John goes on: “Everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.”

Are you living in light of God’s ultimate goal for your life? Today let’s cooperate with God in His eternal goal to make us holy.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
