1 Thessalonians 4:7 (ESV)
For God has not called us for impurity, but in holiness.
We must be holy and live holy lives! What does that even mean? Well, simply put, it means to be set apart—in a good way.
If you’re a Christian, that means you should think differently, act differently, and live your life differently. This is what it means to be set apart or holy. But in order to be set apart for God, we need to learn to first set apart time with God.
Life gets busy. There are so many things contending for our time and attention: school, homework, sports, friends, family, and the list goes on and on. God begins to get pushed to the back of our minds, and eventually we realize that we haven’t really spent time with Him in a while.
So if that’s you, here’s what you need to do: slow down, stop and put everything away, and set apart time for God. Get away from it all. Be silent for a moment. Go experience God in nature, read your Bible, journal, or pray.
What do you need to do less of to experience more of God in your life?
To be set apart we need to set apart time with God.
Dear Lord, we pray today that we would make it a priority to experience You more in every part of our life. Show is the things that we need to let go of so we can become closer to You. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
