 Holiness is the act of living a blameless and upright life, obeying God’s commands, shunning evil and reverently fearing God. By this quality one becomes morally perfect, with a clear conscience before God and man. Here are ten reasons why you must be holy; 
  1. God is holy and as His children, we should be holy (1 Pet. 1:15-16) 
  2. Because we are members of a holy nation (1 Pet. 2:9) 
  3. God chose us form the beginning to be holy and blameless in Him (Eph. 1:4) 
  4. We are  called into  holiness (1 Thess. 4:7) 
  5. It is God’s will that every believer in Christ lives in holiness (1 Thess. 4:3) 
  6. Without holiness, no man can see the Lord (Heb. 12:14) 
  7. We are called into a holy life (2 Tim. 1:8-9) 
  8. Our body, which is the temple of God must be holy (1 Cor. 3:16-17) 
  9. Being partakers of God’s divine nature, we must live in holiness (2 Pet. 1:4-8) 
  10. All who have hope in the return of Jesus must live a life of holiness (2 Pet. 3:14; 1 Jn. 3:3)

Holiness must be so preached not because people are living unholy lives, but because God, our Father is Holy. There is a Ghanaian proverb that “a crab does not beget a bird”. A crab gives birth to a crab and a bird also gives birth to a bird. God is holy and therefore does not beget unholy children, for which He beckons all His children to be holy as He is.
