Christians Must Prioritize Holiness
(Passage: Hosea 10)
God prioritizes holiness! God reminded Israelites that he would punish them for their unrepentant sins.
Israelites will be punished if they persist in sin, but they will be blessed if they repent of their sins.
The Creator promised to avert the evil that ought to come on his children if they can repent of their evil ways.
“Sow for yourselves righteousness; reap loyal love. Break up for yourself fallow ground; it is time to seek Yahweh so he will come and rain righteousness upon you.” (Hosea 10:12).
Obey God To Receive His Blessing
Holiness has no substitute with God! There are God’s punishments to apply for human sins. God’s positive rewards will pursue people who pursue peace and serve him in righteousness.
God will judge people that persist in their sins. However, God’s desires that all people repent of their wicked ways so that he can bless them.
Those who satisfy the holiness standard of God will receive his immeasurable blessing of peace and prosperity in this life and in heaven also.
Dear God, please help me to live in holiness so that you can be happy with me!
I know that you have a righteous standard to reward the righteous people and punish the wicked people; therefore, I desire to be your righteous child.
Please empower me to live the life that satisfies you so that I can enjoy your blessing here on earth and in heaven also.
For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
