Simple Family Devotions #18: Holiness

Spending time with your family in God’s Word is life-transforming. Yet sometimes it is difficult to know where to start. I have created these simple family devotions to help. Any believer can do this! Read the introduction, ask your children to look up the verses, and then discuss what they mean and how they apply together. You will be happy you did!


If you say you want to be with God in heaven in the future, you must be committed to living for God in earth in the present. To claim to be a Christian without having a desire to be holy is nonsense talk. Let’s take a few minutes and think more carefully about why holiness is important, what it means to be holy, and how we can pursue it.

Look up the following verses and summarize what they teach about being holy.

1.) 1 Peter 1:14-16

2.) 2 Corinthians 5:17

3.) Romans 6:6

4.) Romans 12:1,2

5.) 2 Corinthians 3:18

6.) Hebrews 12:14

7.) Hebrews 13:20,21

8.) Colossians 3:5

9.) 1 Thessalonians 4:3-7

10.) Philippians 2:12,13

Now, you’ve seen many verses about holiness but what difference will they make in your life today? What is one way you can think or feel or believe differently based on what you have studied?
