9 He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. 2 Timothy 1:9
After reading this verse, one question comes to mind: what is God’s purpose and grace for our lives? We of course do not know the answer to that entirely, but we do know what we are called to do: live a holy life. Now what? How do we live a holy life since we’re called to do that?
As I was typing that, the song
Every move I make I make in you, you are my way, Jesus,
Every move I make I make in you”
came into my mind. I haven’t heard the song in two months. The words to that song answer the previous question. Obviously it’s easier said than done because life happens.
It starts with the mind and then moves to words and actions. Do we have “holy life” etched into our minds? It’s not that we are thinking about it 24/7. Or maybe it is.
We do know this: God desires and gives us the power to be holy. It’s a simple statement with broad implications.
