Positional & Personal Holiness

(From Seeking Him)

“Holiness can be defined on two levels.
Positional holiness is what God imparts to us when we become His children. Since Hod is holy and we are sinners, we are reconciled to God by the blood of Christ shed on the cross.
Personal holiness on the other hand, is the outworking and fruit of pesional holiness, evidenced in the way we thinkand live. "

Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her to make her holy, cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to himself as a radiant church, without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. Ephesians 5:25-27

“To be sanctified is to be made holy in our practice. Sanctification is a process that begins in every child of God at the point of regenaration and continues untill our final glorification whrn we see Christ face to face.”
