However, other verses state that some people are holy, too: Exodus 22:31, Leviticus 11:44-45, Leviticus 19:2, Leviticus 20:7, Deuteronomy 7:6, Isaiah 4:3, Psalm 16:10, Psalm 86:2, Luke 2:23, I Corinthians 7:14, and Revelation 22:11, for instance.
Only God is perfectly holy. Through Christ we can be holy in God’s sight, and we can live holy lives as well.
“Holy” can be somewhat of a relative term; for instance, we can live a holy life through Christ, but sadly, compared to Christ Himself, we still come far short (Isaiah 6:5). This does not mean that we do not live holy lives, but it means that when we realize how perfectly holy Jesus Christ is, we realize that He is the only perfectly holy One.
