In the movie The Kingdom of Heaven the a young blacksmith is recruited by his liege lord to join a crusade in the Holy Land to Jerusalem. Through many twists and turns this young man (Orlando Bloom) is knighted and adopted by this dying Lord as his son; and he tells the young man to tell the royalty in Jerusalem that he is a natural born son.

In Jerusalem, one of the first people that takes an interest in this young knight is the Bishop of Jerusalem, who takes him under his wing, and mentors him in the politics of the city, and the situation between the Christians and the Muslims.

At one point the Bishop asks the young man what his father had told him to do when he reached Jerusalem. The answer is something that reflects the status of the Bondservants of Jesus today. The Knight said, "My father said for me to try to 'be a good knight'." The Bishop's told him, "Holy is doing right".

This is what Jesus told His own eyewitness disciples, and they have passed this instruction on to us.

Joh 14:15  "If you love Me, you will keep My commandments".

This is what it is to BE HOLY! If we are to enter the Kingdom of God then we must be HOLY in fact, not in faith.
