TOPIC: The Pathway To Heaven
Lev. 20:7 “Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy: for I am the Lord your God”
MFM Daily Devotional 13 October 2021 OUTLINE:
Holiness is called the lifestyle of righteousness and purity of heart. Holiness is the circumcision of the heart and it is the divine requirement to get to heaven. The Bible in Ps. 24:3-4 tells us that only the people with clean hands, pure heart and soul are qualiﬁed to ascend the hill of the Lord (His heavenly throne). True holiness that will qualify you to make heaven will affect your hands, heart and your soul.
That is, everything about you. True holiness emanates from the inside and changes your outward character. Any service to God without holiness is unreasonable and this will not take you to heaven (Ps. 132:1-9). God requires that you must travel on the pathway of holiness while on your way to heaven. Holiness is when you are wholly dedicated to your God. It is being completely yielded to the will of God and being ﬁlled with His love. Holiness is more than doctrine.
It means sanctify, sacredness, regeneration, consecration, purity and righteousness. The highway of holiness is the way righteous pilgrims take from the wilderness of suffering to heaven’s New Jerusalem. The highway of holiness is found only by following God. Only the redeemed will travel God’s highway. God is preparing a way for you to travel to your home in heaven.
He will walk with you through this way when you are ready and prepared to walk in holiness and righteousness. If you want to be successful in the Christian walk, the only way to walk is the way of holiness. This walk is an on-going process that starts the moment you put your faith in the saving work of the Lord Jesus Christ.
God commanded you to be holy (Lev. 11:44-45). It is not an easy task to be holy in an unholy world, but God does not ask you to accomplish this on your own. He has provided help through the death of His Son, Jesus Christ. He will present you holy, blameless in His sight” (Col. 1:22). With Christ, you can live in the world without being of the world.
Beloved, there is nothing as miserable as to try to live a holy life without being born again. There is no cutting corners. God is holy and it will take holiness to enter into His eternity.
Being holy is the only pre-requisite to see God’s face.
You shall no longer wear the garment of hell in the name of Jesus.
HYMN – Holy, holy, holy!
1. Holy, holy, holy!
Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning
Our song shall rise to Thee:
Holy, holy, holy!
Merciful and mighty!
God in three Persons,
2. Holy, holy, holy!
all the saints adore Thee,
Casting down their golden crowns
around the glassy sea;
Cherubim and seraphim
Falling down before Thee,
Which wert and art and
evermore shalt be.
3. Holy, holy, holy!
though the darkness hide Thee,
Though the eye of sinful man
Thy glory may not see;
Only Thou art to holy
there is none beside Thee,
Perfect in pow’r, in love and purity.
1. O Lord, help me to put on the garment of righteousness, in the name of Jesus.
2. O Lord, help me to crucify my flesh, in the name of Jesus.
3. O Lord, break me and remould me, in the name of Jesus.
4. O Lord, set my feet in the pathway of holiness, in the name of Jesus Christ
5. Lord Jesus, grant me the grace to persevere and stand in You in the journey of life, in the name of Jesus Christ.
6. I terminate by the blood of Jesus Christ, every stronghold of pleasure or pressure that wants to hinder me from walking in the narrow way to heaven, in the name of Jesus Christ.
