This word is usually misunderstood,

Holiness is a term that scares people away,

its a term misjudged in many ways,

that surely turns people's back away from it.

What does holiness truly mean?

People say its about wearing the right clothes,

Long skirt, long sleeves, neat hair...

Is that what you think as well?

Some even say holiness is like a white canvas,

someone who is sinless, kind, and pure.

Someone who does no wrong,

But is there such person that could ever exist?

Oh please, don't give me the pastors' kids.

They might be even worst than you think,

Too much expectations, too much white,

that brings them to the wrong side.

If this is such perspective towards holiness,

then no one can ever know our real God.

Our God who gives so much love and grace.

For God can only be with us in complete holiness.

Holiness cannot be gained through works,

For it is a gift freely given away,

To those who receive it completely,

With no second thoughts.

Holiness is not about the things we do,

Not about the things we wear nor eat.

It's not about the material things or good deeds,

Holiness can never be about such shallow things.

For Holiness can only be explained in one single way,

It's not even a sentence nor a phrase,

Don't make something simple, too complicated.

Holiness is Jesus Christ.

He Died just for you and me,

the perfect sacrifice, sinless and pure,

He died to restore our relationship with God,

He died to give us life and holiness.

Now, it's your choice if you'll receive Him.

He's gave himself to you freely,

He made a way for you to be Holy,

Won't you accept this perfect gift today?

Don't wait for tomorrow, or later.

It's just a simple prayer to utter.

He's been waiting for you for long,

and He's not giving up on you, whatever you do.
