Fear of God Devotional: Holiness Flows From Affections That Are Fixed On Jesus

What is holiness and how do we grow in it?

Jason Dohm explains in this video that for many people, when they hear of “holiness,” it makes them think of self-righteousness. But this is an incorrect thinking of the word. Holiness means being completely set apart for God. Being available to do His will at all times. Holiness stems from a heart of love for God and His ways.

What we desire should be based upon an overflow of affection for God. Hearts that love God most want to be set apart to do whatever it is that He is pleased with. That is the nature of holiness. It flows from a life of affections that are fixed on God. Consequently, we desire to be set apart for Him.

Matthew 22:37 (NKJV) – “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.”
