Proximity, not will power!

Proximity, not will power!

You don’t need to be holy enough or righteous enough in order to step into everything I have for you. You can’t be holy on your own and you were never meant to try! That’s why I keep inviting you back into life with me.

I am holy enough. I am righteous enough. Do life with me, in me, and you, by nature of your proximity to me, become holy, righteous and loving enough for everything I’m inviting you into.

There is no worry about being “found out” because those people you look up to and see as holy are also holy only  by proximity. They didn’t will themselves holy anymore than you can!

This is all about moving in step with me, flowing with me, and trusting that me in you is more than sufficient for everything in your today. Be holy because I am holy is about proximity, not will power!

“As obedient children, let yourselves be pulled into a way of life shaped by God’s life, a life energetic and blazing with holiness. God said, ‘I am holy; you be holy.’” 1 Peter 1:15+16 MSG

Journal prompt: Are there any areas of my life where I have been trying to will power my way to holiness?
