What It Means to Live Holy

It’s when we begin to apply the word of God to our life, we begin to do His word.
Dr. Baruch Korman


Shalom from Israel.  My name is Dr. Baruch Korman, welcome to God Today. Our subject is, “Living a Holy Life”.  Now, that word “holy” can also be thought of as sanctification both in the Hebrew language and the Greek language, the word for holy and sanctification is the same.  But, how do we do that? What is God’s expectations for us in living a life that is pleasing to him? Did you know that the word “holy” is related to the purposes of God?  You see, we can only live a life that is pleasing to Him, a life that is holy, a life that is God-honoring when we are focused in on the purposes of God.

Here is the problem.  Today, many people are trying to get God to bless their dreams.  They have desires, they have wants, they have expectations for their life.  They come to faith hoping that God will bless them in becoming what God would have them to be?  No. That’s the problem. They want to become what they want to be, rather than submitting to God’s purposes and plans.  It is only when we listen to God. How do we listen to God? There is a great piece of scripture in the book of Exodus 24:7.  In Judaism, we know it very well. It is, “Na’aseh v’nishma.” Which means: “And we will do and we will hear.” Now, usually, people think just the opposite.  First, I have to hear, then I am able to do. But, biblically it is the opposite. It’s when we begin to apply the word of God to our life, we begin to do His word.  Fulfilling His purposes, then God will begin to speak and direct us. We will hear from Him and that personal plan that He has for what He wants for our life. When we do that, life gets very exciting.  

May I pray for you?  Father, God, we love you.  We want to listen so that we might obey your purposes and your truth.  That we might be vessels that refer to others your truth and your glory.  For this we ask in the blessed name of Messiah, Yeshua, that is Jesus of Nazareth.  And we say, Amen.
