“You are to be holy to me because I, the LORD, am holy, and I have set you apart from the nations to be my own.” –Leviticus 20:26 NIV
Have you ever entered or seen a look-alike contest? That is where two people who are not related look so much like each other that no one can tell them apart!
Our goal is to look like Jesus—to become “invisible” in Him, so that others can only really see Him!
We do that by becoming holy–by following all of His ways, by reading and hiding His Word in our heart that we might not sin against Him; by praising and worshiping Him; and by talking to Him throughout the day in prayer (as good friends talk); and, of course, by not doing what we know is wrong.
In Webster’s Dictionary on the Internet, I found that “holy” comes from the Old English word “whole” and means “one perfect in goodness and righteousness” and “divine.”
To truly look like Jesus–to truly become holy in our bodies and minds and keep our spirits right before the LORD–we must become like Jesus. He will help us, and He enjoys it!
How can you become more “invisible” so people see more Jesus in you?
