Be Holy, For The Lord Your God Is Holy

"But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation,
a people belonging to God , that you may declare the praise of Him
who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light.

Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God;
Once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
Dear friends, I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world,
to abstain from sinful desires which war against your soul.

Live such good lives among the pagans that, though they accuse
you of doing wrong, they may see your good deeds and glorify
God on the day He visits us."

1 Peter 2: 9-12

Live such holy and godly lives showing your good deeds to all that they may praise your Father in heaven. Do everything for the glory of God and live your lives in order to please Him. Then you will shine like bright stars in the firmament of heaven.

Hi Shy,
I am always praying for you and your whole family. It is not only by going to mass on Sundays that we become spiritual. It is by doing the will of God in our lives. Just do what you think is right and someday, somebody will lead you to God. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always my friend.

I agree with you Sir Mel. we are not church goers for some reasons but it doesn't mean we don't believe in HIM. We may not go to church but we are doing the will of GOD.

Hi Rossel,
I do not know what you mean by doing the will of God. We will know His will if we have an intimate relationship with Him through constant prayers and reading the word of God everyday. We have to attend church or fellowship regularly to be strengthened against trials and temptations. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

I know that my good deeds will not go without noticed in the eyes of the Lord, for He knows the heart. Thanks be to God.

Hi may,
Yes, you are right. The Lord knows everything even those that are hidden from men for He sees the hearts of men. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.

I agree with your comment kay tsang don't necessary need to go to church to pray to God and ask his forgiveness.....ako's been awhile since the last time we went to church....but I always lift up my hands, pray to him and ask forgiveness every single day....satisfied na ako don....I know fellowship is important too.

salamat sa post kuyaMel...:) this is what I like on doing before going to bed....have to read your post para ma enlighten yung mind ko....hehhehe!

Mel Avila Alarilla said...

Hi Dhemz,
Yes, we can always pray at home pero meron tayong minimum responsibility to the Lord to fellowship with Him at least every Sunday. Failure to do this makes our spiritual condition weak and very susceptible to temptations and attacks from the enemy. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.
