A call to Holiness

Holiness (that is, absolute sinlessness) is indeed required to remain in God’s presence, since God Himself is holy.

Ever since the fall of humanity into sin (Genesis 3), it has been impossible for humans to attain this holiness through their own effort, since the tendency to sin (or sin nature) has been continuously passed down from one human generation to the next (Romans 5:12).

In response to this situation, and motivated by pure, undeserved love and mercy toward humanity, God incarnated Himself in the person of Jesus, who, although He was truly human, was also (due to the method in which He was conceived through the working of God the Holy Spirit) born without the sin nature possessed by every other person who has ever lived.
