Holy means being set apart for a special purpose. It doesn’t mean that one is better than someone else, nor does it mean being “religious” in comparison to anyone else. But we’ve turned it into a work that means ultra religious, even “stuck up” or “holier than thou.”
Each of us as Christians has a holy calling. What is unique in our lives is used by God for his purposes. It could be the circle of influence we have. It could be a special gift or talent. It could be a special time or place that God will use. Whichever, you are holy, unique, and set apart by God to serve in ways you uniquely can. Family, friends, abilities, interests and desires unique to us become our context of personally serving God.
So, we are holy. Everyone of us is unique, with different talents, knowledge, and circles of friends. God uses us within these contexts. When we obey God we are involved in a holy moment or action. We are not better or worse than anyone else. But our abilities, family, or circle of friends places where we are the best one to serve God in that context.
So, each one of us uniquely created to serve the Lord. You are holy.
Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
