Christian speaker and author Priscilla Shirer delivered a powerful message on holiness that every Christian needs to hear.
Shirer was one of the speakers at the “Woman Thou Art Loosed” Conference held last year in September. And at that time, the Christian media personality shared a compelling truth about holiness that is relevant to every generation.
“You gotta be holy,” she declared.
She explained that without holiness, prayers would go to waste. “You can be in your war room, praying until you’re blue in the face,” she said. “But if you come out of that prayer closet and you live in a raggedy wayward lifestyle that is out of alignment with the truth of God, then your prayers will have been wasted.”
Her sermon was taken from Ephesians 6:14, which says, “Stand firm.. having put on the breastplate of righteousness.”
To this, she encouraged the attendees to wear the breastplate by being righteous and holy. “If I were your enemy, more than anything else, I would want you going into battle without a breastplate.”
She added, “Without a breastplate, one shot to the heart would take him (a soldier) out.”
“If I were your enemy, I would be dangling the right carrot.. that I have studied and seen through that will allure you away from walking in holiness.” She further warned her listeners that these “carrots” appear in one’s season of weakness. “It’s not a coincidence. It’s a scheme.”
Shirer continued to expose the enemy by sharing what it wanted. She said, “The enemy wants us bound living in every kind of wayward lifestyle and habit. He wants us addicted and walking in sin.”
“He doesn’t mind if you’re a churchgoer.. What he doesn’t want is you walking in holiness. He don’t want you choosing holiness because holiness means you have blocked him out from a full frontal attack on your life.”
So, lay aside every sin that entangles because there is a race to be run.
