Holiness Bible Verses
So set yourselves apart to be holy,
for I am the LORD your God.
Because of this, I always try to maintain a clear
conscience before God and all people.
But now you are free from the power of sin and
have become slaves of God. Now you do those
things that lead to holiness and result in eternal life.
And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with
you to give your bodies to God because of all he has
done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the
kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way
to worship him. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of
this world, but let God transform you into a new person
by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to
know God’s will for you, which is good and
pleasing and perfect.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20
Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of
the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you
by God? You do not belong to yourself, for
God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God
with your body.
Even before he made the world, God loved us and
chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes.
Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and
attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like
God—truly righteous and holy.
Yet now he has reconciled you to himself through the
death of Christ in his physical body. As a result, he has
brought you into his own presence, and you are holy and
blameless as you stand before him without a single fault.
Work at living in peace with everyone, and work
at living a holy life, for those who are not holy
will not see the Lord.
For our earthly fathers disciplined us for a few
years, doing the best they knew how. But God’s
discipline is always good for us, so that we might
share in his holiness.
1 Peter 1:14-15
So you must live as God’s obedient children. Don’t
slip back into your old ways of living to satisfy your own
desires. You didn’t know any better then. But now
you must be holy in everything you do, just as God
who chose you is holy.
