The word holy means set apart, separate from sin. No one can be holy, without God. We don't deserve to spend eternity with God because of our sin. But when you are a Christian, he doesn't see your sin, he just sees the blood of Jesus which covers your sin. It's like throwing a blanket over a mess on the floor - you can't see the mess - just the blanket. Pretty crazy - right!
1 Peter 1:16 says, Be holy, because I am holy. Kids often look like their parents. I look a lot like my Mum. Because God is our Heavenly Father, we should look like him. We should be holy because he is holy. We should try to do the right thing, knowing that if we stuff up and do the wrong thing God will forgive us.
