"Be holy...because I am holy:"

My reading this morning took me to Leviticus, chapters 11-13. The bulk of the reading was law concerning clean and and unclean food, purification after childbirth and regulations about skin disease. One verse really stuck out with me though. Leviticus 11:45 says, "I am the Lord, who brought you up out of Egypt to be your God; therefore be holy, because I am holy."
God IS holy...of that I have no doubt. My doubt comes from the last part of that verse..."be holy, because I am holy." How in the world do I...this unfinished, unworthy piece of a holy? In my devotional this morning I read how miraculous it is that God offers us a set-free life through Jesus. We are no longer slaves to sin because we have been set free through the blood of Jesus! Because of this we can know the grace and forgiveness God gives His children. We can live an empowered life to honor Him. Our journey from set-free to promoted is nothing short of miraculous!!!
I am so thankful for the freeing hand of God! So blessed to no longer be a slave to sin!!! Take a minute or two and listen to this speaks volumes!!
Have a wonderfully blessed day!
