“…I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect.” Gen. 17:1b
Today, we shall look into the benefits of holiness and why God does not condone unholy living.
Other Benefits of Holiness
There are many rewards attached to holiness. One of them is answered prayers – Lk. 1:13; Ps. 34:15-17. The tomorrow of a righteous person is determined by God – Is. 3:10; Jer. 29:11. A man that fears and obeys God will enjoy divine health – Ex. 15:26. He also enjoys supernatural provisions from the El-Shaddai God – Ps. 92:12. The cup of a holy child of God will always overflow and they will enjoy overtaking blessings – Ps. 23:5; Dt. 28:1-2. Lastly, they that love to do that which is right in God’s presence will be victorious, promoted and endowed with supernatural anointing – Dt. 28:7; Heb. 1:9.
Why God Does Not Condone Unholy Living
If two do not agree, they cannot walk together. God cannot condone sin because everything about Him is holy and hence Christians are commanded to be perfect in holiness, body, soul and spirit. Our glorious God lives in holiness. His throne is holy. The angels around Him are holy and holiness is their song. In fact, He also lives in a holy city. Rom. 6:19, 22; 2 Cor. 7:1; Eph. 4:24; 1 Thess. 4:7; Ex. 15:11; Ps. 47:8; Rev. 14:10; Rev. 4:8; Rev. 22:19.
A nation that fears God and lives righteously shall be exalted. Disobeying God’s instructions will lead to divine rejection and eternal condemnation. 1 Sam. 15:22-23; Rev. 22:14-15; Pro. 14:34.
