The Bible is referred to as the ‘Holy’ Bible but have you ever wondered as to what makes a book distinct as being ‘Holy’? The Bible is called the Holy Bible, because the author (i.e. God) is Holy (2 Timothy 3:16; 1 Peter 1:15-16) and it is written so that the readers (i.e. you and me) can be sanctified by internalizing it and become Holy as well. God commands each of us to be Holy, for He is Holy (1 Peter 1:15-16). Each book in the Bible paints the story of a Holy God who sent his Holy Son (Mark 1:24; 1 Peter 2:22), to die for us, an unholy people, so that His Holiness may be imputed on us, when we believe in his Son. In fact, there is no other way for us (readers) to become Holy, except by believing in the Holy Son of God and the ‘Holy Bible’ teaches us that.
Points to ponder:
God requires for us to be Holy for he is Holy. Are you? Am I?
In other words, have you believed in Jesus Christ, the Only begotten Holy Son of God.
1 Peter 1:15-16 (KJV)
15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;
16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
