Holiness of The Office of The Pastor
Often in Scripture, the Lord cites His own incomparable holiness as a reason why our holiness is essential — and the primary way we glorify Him. In fact, according to Hebrews 12:14, no one who is without holiness will see the Lord. Much less then, is an unholy person fit for pastoral ministry. Beginning with the Old Testament priesthood, one of the fundamental requirements for leadership in ministry was the ability “to distinguish between the holy and the common, and between the unclean and the clean” (Leviticus 10:10). Those in ministry were commanded again and again to “sanctify themselves” (Exodus 19:22, 28:41; Leviticus 21:8, II Chronicles 29:5).
