Holiness Becometh Thine House
“The LORD reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the LORD is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved. Thy throne is established of old: thou art from everlasting. The floods have lifted up, O LORD, the floods have lifted up their voice; the floods lift up their waves. The LORD on high is mightier than the noise of many waters, yea, than the mighty waves of the sea. Thy testimonies are very sure: holiness becometh thine house, O LORD, for ever.”
Today’s Morsel: One of the biggest fallacies about holiness in the church is the lack of understanding and its meaning. Holiness means to be set apart, to be consecrated to God; Morally pure, holy, blameless. Ask yourself, if Jesus came back right now for you, would you be able to go with Him? Many churches are not teaching saints the importance of holiness and separation. The Psalmist said, "Holiness becometh thine house." Paul wrote that we are the Temple of God. "Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.” (1 Corinthians 3:16-17) And he said if we defile this temple, God will destroy us. You are not one of Robin Hood's Knights in tights and spandex in the Sherwood Forrest; nor are you some advertisement for a cosmetic company. You are the church of the living God, the temple of the Highest. Therefore, you must give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name and worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness (Psalms 29:2). We must remain morally pure and holy.

Thought For Today: You are the temple of God.
