Created to be Holy

God Created You To Be Holy

Written By Bishop V. Bush

My friend, did you ever stop to think why you are here on this earth? Well, if you have not, you should.  You did not have anything to do with your being here, and so you ought to find out.

The reason why men are here on this earth is to live and be holy like God.  That is why God made man on the earth.

Now let's look at the scripture in Ephesians 1:4. "According as hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:..."  So you see, it is God's will that men be holy and that is why He made him.

In the beginning when God made man, He made him in His likeness. If God made man like Him, he was holy because God is holy.

In Genesis 1:26, "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:..." Genesis 1:27 "So, God created man in his own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created he them." So you see my friend, that is why God made you, because he wants you to be holy. He did not create men to lie, steal, hate, kill and like such. 1 Peter 1:15-16, "But as he which hath called you is holy so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; because it is written, be ye holy; for I am holy."

So dear friend, you must live a holy life right here on this earth. The bible says in Matthew 5:48, "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect."

You must repent of your sins, be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and get the Holy Ghost. Then you can live holy like God wants you to.

Acts 1:8,  "But ye shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you:.." That is what everyone must do.
