Joseph Prince explains the real standard of our holiness.
The senior pastor of New Creation Church in Singapore, Joseph Prince, reveals to us today the real standard of holiness. How can one person be called holy and what can we do to be called holy?
The evangelist started his message by emphasizing that you are the righteousness of God because of Christ.
“Believe that you are the righteousness of God in Christ, this is the Gospel,” he said.
Standard for Holiness
It was because of what God did on the cross for us. Christ is the reason why we are holy because He is holy. And on the cross, He took away all our sins and unrighteousness for us to live in His holiness.
“Christ was made sin with your sin. He who knew no sin, He who did no sin, in Him is no sin. He never has to recall a word, never has to retrace a step in Him. All things are beautiful and lovely and all moral excellencies converge in Him. Everything about Him is equal proportion,” he added.
Finally, Pastor Prince then revealed what is the true standard of holiness, and that’s Jesus. There’s no other standard for our holiness, He is our only standard. Not the standard of our government, our church, our family, or ourselves – Christ is our only standard for holiness.
“He is altogether lovely, His name is Jesus. The more we look at Him, the more we become like Him. Holiness is not your standard, it’s not your denominational standard, it’s not my standard. Holiness to God in Christ, He is our standard.”
For us to live a holy life, let’s just focus on Jesus because the more we get to know Him, the more we become like Him.
