It is a snare to say rashly, “It is holy,” and to reflect only after making vows.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.
How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word.
Your decrees are very trustworthy; holiness befits your house, O Lord, forevermore.
Worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness; tremble before him, all the earth!
Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify your name? For you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship you, for your righteous acts have been revealed.
And the four living creatures, each of them with six wings, are full of eyes all around and within, and day and night they never cease to say, “Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!”
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.
I am speaking in human terms, because of your natural limitations. For just as you once presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves to righteousness leading to sanctification.
But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life.
1 Thessalonians 4:7
For God has not called us for impurity, but in holiness.
1 Thessalonians 5:23
Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
