Day 78~ James 4- 1 Peter 1
“But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: “Be holy because I am holy.” (1:15)
My footnote says, “To be holy is to be set apart- set apart from sin and impurity, and set apart to God.”
James can’t be referring to just an inward change that no one can see because the writer of Hebrews just got finished telling us, “You see that a person is justified by what he does and not by faith alone.” (2:24).
I’m just going to ask a simple question to my fellow readers, ‘cause I would really like to know the answer…
How would one demonstrate being set apart? How would you appear/or act different from a nonbeliever? I know the obvious answers, “Don’t do any of the things that would land you in jail or court.”
But what about a suburbanite, Christian doing yoga next to another suburbanite, non-Christian? How would you be able to tell one from the other?
