Reaching for Holiness

We’ve been looking at Hebrews 12:14, and seeing that without holiness no one will see the Lord. Here’s a devotional poem from Christ-follower Rena Himick seeing the same. It’s called “Reaching for Holiness.”

Father, your will
is for me
to be holy —
holiness is
what I need
to live free.

make me holy
so I can
the Father.

Without holiness,
no one can
see you, Lord —
see you
in me.

Surely I fall short
of any holiness at all.
But with your Spirit
deep within,
I can reach
and not fall.
