Why holiness is important and how holiness fosters relationship with God

Holiness and Relationship

Over at Do Not Depart this month, the team has been studying “holiness” and what that means as believer.

As a kid, I loved school. I loved learning, reading, and sometimes even studying. My family firmly believed that knowledge created opportunities as well as our own understanding of people and events around us. Why holiness is important and how holiness fosters relationship with God

While I still believe that now (and still love learning), I’ve also experienced how easy it is for me to get “stuck” on the knowledge part and sometimes forget about other aspects beyond knowledge.

The same goes for our knowledge of God. We already know we can only know so much about God (Isaiah 55:8-9). In the pursuit of more knowledge and facts, we may sometimes forget God openly offers us a relationship.

Pursuing God in ways beyond facts deepens our relationship. God created us to be with Him. Our pursuit of His ways draws us closer to Him as we see more of who He is.
