Week 5 Devo – THURSDAY
Because God is holy, we are commanded to be holy. This means that just as God is pure in heart, not doing anything out of sinful motivation and distinct from everything else, we are also supposed to be pure and distinct. He calls us to be pure in heart by being obedient to Him rather than a slave to sin, and He calls us to be distinct, or different, from the culture when it celebrates sin. Just as God refined Isaiah with a lump of burning coal, if we have surrendered our life to Christ, we are refined daily to look more like God and less like the world.
What are some ways Christians should be different from the world?
What can you do this week to look more like Christ?
