Exodus 30:37 And as for the perfume which thou shalt make, ye shall not make to yourselves according to the composition thereof: it shall be unto thee holy for the Lord.
This verse helps us understand the word holy. The perfume was to be made only for the Lord therefore it would be holy for the Lord. It would belong to Him. It would be set aside for Him and Him alone.
As you understand holy you will realize that it means that you are not your own, you are bought with a price. It will meat that you are His. It is not a quality that you earn or possess. It is more a recognition of God saying it was His.
Holy, something He makes us and not we ourselves!
