The New Testament Focuses more on Holy Identity than Holy Behavior

There are 13 Verses in the New Testament that tell us WE ARE HOLY.
There are 3 verses in the New Testament that tell us to behave holy. Two of those remind us that we are holy, telling us to act holy because we are already holy.

2 Timothy 1:9 says, "God called us with a HOLY calling that is NOT BASED ON OUR WORKS. God's Holy calling is based on HIS GRACE."

Holiness is not something to hunger or strive for, Holiness is a gift we already have! Our spirits are reborn holy by the Holy Spirit. You never need to thirst for living water. You have rivers of it flowing out of you!

The 13
(Romans 11:16, 1 Corinthians 3:17, 7:14, Ephesians 1:4, 2:21, 5:27, Colossians 1:22, 3:12, Hebrews 3:1, 1 Peter 2:9, Revelation 20:6, 1 Peter 1:15-16, Revelation 22:11)
The 3
(1 Peter 1:15-16, 2 Peter 3:11, Revelation 22:11)
