Whither Thou Goest

And the two shall become one . . .

"By this we may know that we are in him:
whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked."
―1 John 2:5-6, ESV

Many Christians have what we might call a "cultural holiness". They adapt to the character and behavior pattern of Christians around them. As the Christian culture around them is more or less holy, so these Christians are more or less holy. But God has not called us to be like those around us. He has called us to be like himself. Holiness is nothing less than conformity to the character of God. ―Jerry Bridges

 "Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you." ―Philippians 4:9, KJV

 Can you say, like Paul, "Follow my example"? Hold the bar high.
