Holy and imperfect seem an oxymoron.
Yet it is not. It can't be.
The believer, a human being, is called to holy living and is indeed deemed holy because of Christ.
Yet he or she is still imperfect.
We must rid ourselves of thinking that holy is a pretense, something that we conjure. That it is walking around with a light or halo above our heads. Or regurgitating Scripture to everyone we come in contact.
That is not holy. That is annoying.
Holy- dedicated or consecrated to God or a religious purpose; sacred.
Our imperfect lives are called to be dedicated...consecrated to God. Our imperfect lives are sacred and holy.
