Billy Sunday died in Chicago, November 6, 1935; services were held in the Moody Memorial Church with 4,400 present. Take 15 minutes each day to listen to God talking to you; take 15 minutes each day to talk to God; take 15 minutes each day to talk to others about God.
This young convert was deeply impressed and determined to make these the rules of his life. From that day onward throughout his life he made it a rule to spend the first moments of his day alone with God and God's Word. Before he read a letter, looked at a paper or even read a telegram, he went first to the Bible, that the first impression of the day might be what he got directly from God.
HOW TO BE WHOLE
May 30, 2021
26 You are to be holy to me because I, the Lord, am holy, and I
have set you apart from the nations to be mine. Leviticus 20:26
Def. HOLY Biblical use of the term “holy” has to do primarily
with God’s separating from the world that which He chooses to
devote to Himself. As God’s redemptive plan unfolded through
the OT, the “holy” became associated with the character of
God’s separated people conforming to His revealed law. When
the time became ripe for the saving work of Jesus Christ, His
redeemed people came to be known as saints (literally, “holy
ones”). The cross made this possible by inaugurating the
fulfillment of the preparatory OT teachings on the holy, opening
the way for God’s Holy Spirit to indwell His people.
