Holiness in a Nutshell


To be changed is conversion.
To be transformed is Holiness.


WHO IS CALLED TO BE HOLY?
All men, women and children of every age, in every state of life, condition, talent and profession.

YOU ARE CALLED TO HOLINESS.
"Be holy in all you do, since it is the Holy One who has called you, and scripture says, 'Be holy, for I am holy.'" (1 Peter 1:15)

WHY?
Because God loves you!
You are precious to Him.
You belong to Him.
He loved you before time began. He is your Father.
You need Him.
