Imitation 9

Do you want to be perfect as your Father in Heaven is perfect?
 
Do you want to be holy because He is holy?
 
If there is no desire for holiness it will not happen. St. Paul said it this way:

“Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:12-14)

“And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” (2 Corinthians 3:18)

“And have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator.” (Colossians 3:10)
