Reading in Ezekiel 44:23 we find, “Teach My people the difference between the holy and the common and show them how to distinguish between the unclean and the clean.”
Yes, there is a difference. Many people have an indifference to the right or wrong of a situation. To them, it really doesn’t matter one way or the other. ‘Whatever’ is okay with them.
Holy means: to be without any sin in one’s life; not doing anything wrong. Being holy does not violate any of God’s laws or commands; because He, Himself, is holy and without sin.
If we can understand what God declares to be right and wrong, we then can see the difference between what is holy and what is common-place. It now becomes easier to follow His guidelines for living our lives.
Learn the Ten Commandments as given in Exodus 20. Study them carefully so that you can discern the difference between right and wrong. Talk to the Lord and allow Him to place His concept of holy upon your heart. Begin to live, not in the realm of the common, but in the realm of God’s holy love. Live free, and enjoy walking daily in His holy presence.
