Since Laura presented us with the greatest Being, I will opt for His greatest characteristic. Above everything else He is holy. In every way He sets Himself apart. He calls us to the same—to be like Him. In our worship, our homes, our work, our demeanor, our dealings with others, and when we are alone, in other words the whole of our existence, we are called to be holy. Many of us would prefer to simply be a face in the crowd. Standing out or drawing attention to ourselves makes us uncomfortable. Going with the flow, conforming to this world, to be seen in the eyes of our neighbors as normal, is certainly easier but even more certainly it is not holy. The call is clear, “Therefore come out from them and be separate. . .” 2 Cor. 6:17 He told Israel and now He tells us, “Be holy because I am holy.” Lev. 11:45; 1 Pet 1:16
