Scripture Song of Leviticus 20:26
“And Ye Shall Be Holy Unto Me”
Commentary on Leviticus 20:26
Our personal perspective
This Scripture has been termed "the forgotten commandment," perhaps because, despite numerous repetitions in both Old and New Testaments, many of us who call ourselves Christians act as though we've never heard it. We tend to see holiness as some kind of a suffocating, unnatural restriction on our lives, not realizing that the One who calls us to live on this higher plane is also the Creator of all our natural desires, and the only One who can truly fulfill them.
