Holiness and Happiness

Holiness is a quality usually attributed to God, but not always seen as a characteristic of man. However, since man in his true being is the image of God, and therefore like his heavenly Father, he must of necessity reflect Godlike qualities, such as holiness.

Students of the Scriptures will recall that Moses, speaking in the name of God, said, "I am the Lord your God: ye shall therefore sanctify yourselves, and ye shall be holy; for I am holy." The word "holy" is defined as "spiritually perfect, whole, or sound; pure in heart." And Christ Jesus, who came to do and to teach the will of God, said, in that part of his Sermon on the Mount known as the Beatitudes, "Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God." In the same sermon he also said, "Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect."
