Your daily dose of true beauty advice…
While writing a book on holiness, I began to pray this prayer:
Show me more of Your holiness.
Show me more of my sinfulness.
Help me to hate sin and to love righteousness as You do.
And make me holy as You are holy.
God answered that prayer by starting to expose sin in my heart—things like not controlling my tongue, my appetite, or my spending habits, and loving myself more than I love others. The more we see God’s holiness, the more we’ll be grieved by sin.
First Corinthians 15:34 says, “Awake to righteousness, and do not sin.” God can awaken a new love for righteousness in your heart. Could I challenge you to pray a prayer like that for the next thirty days? Ask God to give you a deeper conviction of sin and to show you more of His holiness.
