About This Message


Holiness…What Is It?

Belonging to God, set apart, different
Progress, not perfection

Why Would I Want To Be Holy?

Brings Me Freedom

For freedom, Christ set us free. Stand firm then and don’t submit again to a yoke of slavery.
Galatians 5:1 (CSB)

Helps Me See God

Pursue peace with everyone, and holiness—without it no one will see the Lord.
Hebrews 12:14 (NIV)

Allows God To Use Me

Now in a large house there are not only gold and silver vessels, but also those of wood and clay; some for honorable use and some for dishonorable.
2 Timothy 2:20-21 (CSB)

Makes Me Joyful

…for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.  
Romans 14:17 (CSB)

How Can I Be Holy?

1.  Spiritual Birth

…because you have been born again—not of perishable seed but of imperishable—through the living and enduring word of God.
1 Peter 1:23 (CSB)

2. Showing Gratitude

For I am the Lord, who brought you up from the land of Egypt to be your God, so you must be holy because I am holy.
Leviticus 11:45 (CSB)

3. Personal Discipline

For I am the Lord your God, so you must consecrate yourselves and be holy because I am holy. Do not defile yourselves by any swarming creature that crawls on the ground.
Leviticus 11:44 (CSB)

4.  Supernatural Empowerment

I say then, walk by the Spirit and you will certainly not carry out the desire of the flesh.
Galatians 5:16 (CSB)
