Living a Life of God-Given Holiness~

We can say with confidence and a clear conscience that we have lived with a God-given holiness and sincerity in all our dealings. We have depended on God’s grace, not on our own human wisdom. That is how we have conducted ourselves before the world, and especially toward you. 2 Corinthians 1:12

Living with a God-given holiness. Living with sincerity. What a wonderful, victorious way to live! What a testimony to the life-changing power of God at work in our life!

But how?

How can we, like Paul, profess this to be true in our own life? How can we, with a clear conscience, say this is true of you and me?

The answer is found in the rest of this verse.

We have depended on God’s grace, not on our own human wisdom.

Heavenly Father, How we long to declare with Paul that we have lived a life of God-given holiness, a life of sincerity. It is ONLY by depending of your Grace that this is possible. Help us to daily choose your wisdom over our own human wisdom. Help us to yield to your Spirit at work in us and through us. Help us to be a true reflection of you. In Jesus’ name, Amen~
