Holiness is one of God’s basic characteristics. In reference to Him, the word denotes absolute perfection and purity. Only God is holy in Himself.
When the word is applied to persons or objects, it refers to what has been separated or set apart unto God. Since we have received the Holy Spirit of God, we have received power over sin, disease, and the devil -Mark 16:15-18. This power over sin enables us to live a life that is worthy of our name: Christians (Christ-like)
2 Timothy 3:16-17: “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.”
