How to Live Holy presents a practical guide that encourages us to consider and implement seven principles to help us live more consecrated and mature Christian lives.
The first principle is desire, a holy hunger for a deeper relationship with God that results in wanting to please Him and not ourselves. Desire is a prerequisite for living holy. The second principle is devotions, a holy habit. These quiet times with God can strengthen our relationship with Him and prepare us to interact with the world. The third principle is dedication, the holy honor to God that manifests itself in love. God is love, so loving others is a part of living holy.
The fourth principle is denying self, a holy handicap or a self-imposed limitation that recognizes that we must die in order to live holy. The fifth principle is denouncing and detaching, the holy hatchet that identifies evil and cuts off whatever would hinder reaching our goal to live holy. The sixth principle is declaration, the holy heralding whereby we speak out with authority and intention to live holy. Finally, the seventh principle is deployment—who and what we summon for holy help in order to defeat the enemy and experience victory.
If you’re having trouble living holy, this guide is the how-to you’ve been waiting for. Offering strategies and suggested reading, it helps you propel yourself into the mind-set of holy living.
