As you begin your time with God, pause for a few moments and allow yourself to grow still. Let go of any distracting thoughts. Take several slow, deep breaths. Become aware of the great love God has for you.
1 Peter 1:15-16 But, as he who called you is holy, be holy yourselves in every aspect of your conduct, for it is written, “Be holy because I [am] holy.”
In the Bible, to be holy means to be set apart for God. We are called to be holy, to live and act in such a way that those who come in contact with us will catch a glimmer of the presence of God. No small task, but full of eternal rewards.
(Pray, using these words or your own.)
Holy God, help me to conduct myself today so that the world may catch a glimmer of your presence.
