Verse of the Day (January 10, 2020)

Verse of the Day (January 10, 2020) #BMSeminary – Be holy . . . because I am holy. A way of saying that children of God should bear a family likeness to the character of their heavenly Father (Lev 11:44-45; 19:2; 20:7). God’s character was revealed in the OT as the basis of human morality and ethics (Exod 20:1-17; Deut 5:1-22). But the fullest and final revelation of God’s character is seen in Jesus Christ (John 1:18; Col 1:15; Heb 1:3). Christians are not expected to be like God in his deity but are to strive for human righteousness as demonstrated by Jesus. This call to holiness means that Christians will set themselves apart from the customs and values of their unbelieving society to live by the character and teachings of Jesus, no longer allowing their previous unbelief to define them. (Zondervan Study Bible)
