Holiness: First, an attribute of God. He is entirely separate, pure and perfect. There is no stain, blemish or dark side to Him. Second, the goal of the Holy Spirit’s work of sanctification in the life of believers. He makes us more like Christ as we walk with Him; i.e., we are scrubbed clean of our stains and learn how to live purely.
