Jesus was the only person who walked this earth that was without sin, and true holiness can be only claimed by Him. ~ Bill Greguska
Hebrews 12:14 Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness, no one will see the Lord.
Godliness Is Like Holiness!
Holiness Is Something To Strive For, But Not Attain Completly!
Holiness to me while growing up was something extremely hard to accomplish, I still recall being in 7th grade, and no matter how hard I tried to be good (even at the threat of not being able to play in the basketball game on Friday nights) I could barely muster up an hour of good behavior.
Looking back at my life now as an adult it showed me that being good (or holiness) is not something that we can accomplish on our own. It is a spiritual matter that God puts in our heart, directed by His will, taught through the Bible and guided by the Holy Spirit.
Keep in mind that none of us are entirely holy, only one to walk on this earth that was Holy was Jesus Christ Himself. It is evident in Romans 3:23 “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” That does not mean we can not be holy, but our sin nature makes that impossible.
Yes, there are moments that we are living in the Spirit and holiness is obtainable for periods of time, (like when I was in 7th grade), yet as we grow in our faith and walk with God more intimately, those periods of holiness tend to become longer.~Bill Greguska

The Three Main Evil Influences Against Us Are:
Four question test to take when you are struggling to decide whose voice you’re hearing:
Is your first instinct prove you’re right? If so, that is your flesh. It is not the Holy Spirit.
Are you angry with someone? If yes, that is your flesh, your sinful nature at work. The Holy Spirit always deals in love and wants to give you respect by allowing you your free will.
Are you struggling to apologize and admit you’re wrong? That too is your flesh. The Spirit’s desire is for your pride to decrease and the humility of Christ to increase
Are you ungrateful and discontent? If so, you’re being led by your flesh. Ingratitude is never from the Holy Spirit.
