If asked, what is the first thing that God would want us to do – there are many things that come to mind, some of which may be, to fulfill the great commission (Matthew 28:18-20), to be fishers of men, to ___________ (fill in the blank). But the first requirement that was given by God to man is recorded in Leviticus 19:2 and that is “Be HOLY”.
Leviticus 19:1-2 is about the LORD (Jehovah) speaking to Moses, saying, Speak unto all the congregration (of the children of Israel), an say unto them, YE SHALL BE HOLY: FOR I THE LORD YOUR GOD AM HOLY.
Without being Holy, any other thing that we expect to do or be first, including fulfillment of the great commission or being fishers of men will be superfluous.
Point(s) to Ponder:
Lets vouch to be HOLY just our God, Jehovah is; living lives that are pleasing to God, in our thought, word and deed.
