Holiness

Holiness is the state of being holy, that is, set apart for the worship or service of God or gods. It is most usually ascribed to people, but can be and often is ascribed to objects, times, or places. The word holy is related to the word whole.

That is what the world thinks of Holiness. Pretty close definition…

This question is for EVERYONE out there.

We are beginning a new series on Holiness as a Christian in a few weeks. Looking into how and why we are to live a life of holiness.

Reasons I am NOT looking forward to this series…
A. Because my life is as sloppy as the next and it is going to challenge the crap out of me.
B. I am sure that our church is going to have a great deal of difficulty with this one. Why? Having a young/hip/large church, LOT’S of us struggle with too much “Grace” in our daily walks, as you can see by the past 2 years of this blogs existence. 😉
C. Matt is going to be Matt. Kicking our “arses” (see…too much grace) as a staff to be at the front of the movement.

Hey wait a minute? They are the same? Yea. It always works out that way. I am addicted to pain.

OK. So I need you guys. Why is it that every song on Holiness is circa 1994 and in 6/8?
I need relevant/fresh songs on living a holy life and being set apart. Grab your iPods, Zunes, CD’s, Cassette Tapes, Vinyls, 8 tracks, and Hymnals.
Soccer moms, pastors, kids, homeless dudes in the public libraries, lawyers, barristas. Whoever you are.
Help me here. Seriously. Spread the word on your blogs and get me some songs.
