Leviticus 20:26 NLT
26 You must be holy because I, the Lord, am holy. I have set you apart from all other people to be my very own.

To be separated or cut off, separated as pure for a good purpose.

Hebrews 12:14 NLT
14 Work at living in peace with everyone, and work at living a holy life, for those who are not holy will not see the Lord.

1. Holiness does not come naturally.

2. Holiness is connected to peace.

Hebrews 12:15 NLT

15 Look after each other so that none of you fails to receive the grace of God. Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many.

3. Holiness relies on each other.

4. Holiness is rooted in my heart.

Hebrews 12:16-17 NLT

16 Make sure that no one is immoral or godless like Esau, who traded his birthright as the firstborn son for a single meal. 17 You know that afterward, when he wanted his father’s blessing, he was rejected. It was too late for repentance, even though he begged with bitter tears.

5. Holiness is the prize that counterfeits claim to be.
