Peter wrote that Christians must be holy, because God is holy. Great. Fantastic. Things like this always sound nifty in the abstract. So, forget abstractions – what on earth does this actually mean? You know, in real life?
We talked about that in Sunday School this past week. Juicy topics included:
- What areas of our lives should Christians be holy in?
- Is personal holiness an external thing, an internal thing, or both? What does this say about your motivation for wanting to “be holy?”
- How do you avoid being legalistic about all this?
- What is repentance, and what on earth does it have to do with personal holiness?
I’m sure you can’t wait to dive in. I’m here to help. Behold, the audio for this past Sunday’s lesson:
Next week, Peter talks about why we should be holy. Yes, God is holy, so we ought to set ourselves apart for His use. But, specifically, why? I’ll paraphrase the learned philosopher Janet Jackson, and ask, “what has God done for you lately?”
Well, swing by church this coming Sunday and, verily, it shall be made manifest to thee.
