2 Corinthians 7:1

“Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.”‭‭II Corinthians‬ ‭7:1‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

We are called to be holy because He is holy. The Lord has called us to obedience to the Holy Spirit. We are not called to pursue the world or the lust of the sinful nature. It is not biblical to claim to follow Christ and live like the world at the same time. True Christianity is found in the truth of God’s word. There are many who stand behind pulpits who have compromised God’s word and preach a message that simply tickles the ears. Let us hold fast to God’s word and be the sons and daughters God has called us to be.

    Very good point. The key is abiding in Him, as we abide in Him, He empowers us to walk in obedience and holiness.
