Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy (1 Peter 1:16).
The holiness of God is one of the hallmarks of His unwavering and of indescribable character. To be pure and sinless from eternity and throughout eternity is something that can only be said of one who is Divine.
God’s holiness is what makes it impossible for Him to fellowship with sin (Habakkuk 1:13). His holiness is also what causes Him to purify all those who are to come into His presence. Christians are people who by grace have been cleansed from sin by the blood of Jesus, and have thus been sanctified or made holy by a perfect and holy God.
Because God is holy, He has called us to holiness. How exciting!
