The Pursuit Of Holiness

Sunday February 3, 2019

“Be ye holy for I am holy says the Lord” (Lev 11:45; 1 Peter 1:15, 16). This command is found in both the OT and NT. If you have any inclination to “unhitch” from the OT, it is carried over in the NT. Therefore, it is a viable command for the 21st century church. One of the major themes of the Bible is God’s call for His people to become holy like Him. God places a strong emphasis on His followers pursuing holiness, because He wants to restore His image in the lives of His children and conform them to the likeness of His Son, who is the firstborn of many brothers (Rom. 8:29).
