Holy


1Peter 1:15-16 “as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, since it is written, ‘You shall be holy, for I am holy’.”
The celebration of Holi continues today. The religious significance in Hinduism is the battle of good versus evil. Today, Holi is also known as the Festival of Colors due to the practice of celebrants throwing colored powders and water on each other. People from various religions participate in the festivities, leading most people to view these days as a time when all South Asians put aside differences of religion, castes and economics to have fun. Regardless of the modern-day beliefs or the fun that is had in celebrating, Holi has roots in the worship of false gods. For Christians, there is always a question of whether or not to participate. Each one must follow the leading of the Holy Spirit, and choose accordingly. Please pray that national and international believers will hear a clear word from the Lord about their particular circumstances as to how they should spend this weekend. Pray for opportunities to share about Jesus, whether on the streets in the midst of the rainbow showers, or in the quiet of homes where families have gathered for their own celebrations.
