Where is holiness?

Ron Edmondson lists 12 verses that "shaped his life." What I find interesting about this list is that they are behavioral, not theological. That is to say, most people memorize John 3:16. A lot memorize Gal. 2:20, but how many do as Edmondson did and look at:
As obedient children, do not conform to the evil desires you had when you lived in ignorance. But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; 1 Peter 1:14-15
In my dotage, I am coming to realize that being serious about your faith is not in the big things, but in the little. Paul says, "If you speak with the tongues of men and angels, but have not love you are a clanging gong." I can not help but paraphrase that to say, "If you avoid adultery but are still a jerk - God's not really glorified that much."

Maybe another way to look at it is this - avoiding the big sins makes you decent, but does in make you holy?

I want to be holy!
