The Bible lays out holiness for us in a specific command: "Be holy, for I am holy." This is God speaking in Leviticus 11, 19, and in 1st Peter 1. This idea is rephrased and repeated several times and should give us pause. But, there's one major problem: We're not actually doing it!


Our generation is now coming of age with little or no regard for holiness. And, sadly, this makes sense given our misunderstanding of:
-Sin (we view it as either inevitable or we just go with it)
-Holiness (we view it as unrealistic or we ignore it because there's no immediate payoff)
-Innocence (we view it as subordinate to "experiencing the world"), and
-God (we often think he'll probably let us down--just like so many people do).


So, then, what should we do? Rather than just playing up the "guilt/shame" card, Tyler Braun looks straight at Jesus in order to recognize how His way of life stands in contrast to all that the world promises. If we want to partner with God in this restoration effort there are several areas that merit a closer look: our history (what we can learn from past values), community (church for a new generation), worship (what God does in us), and art (what making new things looks like).

When was the last time you thought about holiness?


God's specific command for holiness: "Be holy, for I am holy," (in Leviticus 11, 19, and in 1st Peter 1) is an idea rephrased and repeated throughout the Bible.


But because of our misunderstandings of sin, holiness, innocence, and God, His command rings hollow in the action of our faith.


-Sin (we view it as either inevitable or we just go with it)
-Holiness (we view it as unrealistic or we ignore it because there's no immediate payoff)
-Innocence (we view it as subordinate to "experiencing the world"), and
-God (we often think he'll probably let us down-just like so many people do).


But, what if there was a different way?


By entering into God's deep affection, He rewrites our wayward story into a narrative of unwavering devotion, a living, breathing Christian faith distinguished by God's inner-working. In Why Holiness Matters, Tyler Braun tells the story of the Millennial Generation and our need for rescue from our own shame into the light and love of living in God's presence.
