Do you long for deeper intimacy with your heavenly Father? A close connection exists between living a holy life and experiencing God’s presence. Sin strains our relationship with God and creates distance, but holiness breaks down barriers and moves us ever closer. This six-week study explores why believers should pursue holiness and how living a holy life will draw us into the circle of our holy God’s loving embrace.
Would you like to sit next to God and snuggle up against His side? To be so close you could hear Him breathe? There would be no distance between the two of you, no barriers to prevent you from drawing near. You could linger in His presence and rest in the circle of His embrace.
All of us desire to experience this kind of intimate relationship with our heavenly Father. Yet, we often feel disconnected. We may even sense that something blocks our path to deep, personal companionship with God.
According to Scripture, a life of holiness can pave the way for greater intimacy in our relationship with God.
Who may worship in your sanctuary, LORD? Who may enter your presence on your holy hill? Those who lead blameless lives and do what is right, speaking the truth from sincere hearts. Psalm 15:1-2, NLT
Unholy living floods believers’ lives with the natural consequences of sin, including distance and strain in our relationships with our holy God. But a pursuit of holiness is also a pursuit of God. As we embrace the holy life God calls us to, we are embraced by the Holy One Himself.
