Holiness

Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
James 121 KJV

The engrafted Word always brings life.

One has to recognize their filthy, corrupt way of thinking and acting before they will embrace the words of life found in the Bible. There must be a death blow delivered to the self serving pride of sin sick man.

Once the soul cries out to God and yields to Him, the liberating power of the resurrected Christ Jesus is released and true freedom comes. Fear, frustration, and futility flee. The darkness of despair dissipates in the glorious flood of life giving light.

Whereas our verse for today says, “lay apart,” it declares that we have to choose, and to act on the choice, to exchange our living death for the gift of God’s abundant life.

God has said, “I set before you death and life. I would that you choose life.”
